Title:
Hybrid Millimeter-Wave Push-Push Oscillators Using Silicon-Germanium HBTs 
Abstract:
Push-push design has proven to be an efficient way to extend the usable frequency range of active devices for oscillator applications. In this paper, the basic principles of push-push oscillator design are explained and various possibilities to realize this concept are shown. Several examples of hybrid millimeter-wave push-push oscillators using SiGe HBTs as active devices are discussed. Details on large-signal modeling of the SiGe HBTs using both a vertical bipolar integrated-circuit model, as...    »
