DIELECTRIC RESONATOR OSCILLATORS THEORY AND STATE-OF-THE-ART

A.P.S Khanna

Abstract: With the advent of high-Q temperature-stable dielectric material, the transistor dielectric resonator oscillator (DRO) is fast becoming the most desirable choice in a vast number of fixed-frequency microwave signal source applications. A DRO clearly fills the gap i=between a free-running oscillator and a synthesized source, and represents a good compromise of cost, size and performance compared to alternative signal sources such as high-Q cavity oscillators, microstrip oscillators or multiplied crystal oscillators. Dielectric resonators, due to their excellent integrability in MIC circuits, can directly be used as the frequency-determining element for realizing a stable microwave frequency source.
