Note: Model number E5612 has been discontinued; however, the Oscillator DesignGuide feature/capability is now included in the W2300 Harmonic Balance Element.

The information below is provided for reference only.

The Oscillator DesignGuide works as a smart library and interactive handbook for the creation of useful designs. It allows you to quickly design oscillators, interactively characterize their components, and receive in-depth insight into their operation. It is easily modifiable to user-defined configurations. To assist both expert and novice oscillator developers in creating designs of various complexity, each example design is divided into three groups:

  • Quick and simple push-button nonlinear oscillator measurements
  • Easy-to-use design tools for small- and large-signal designs
  • Customized library of components and component characterization tools

Oscillator DesignGuide contains five oscillator circuits (Generic Oscillator, XTO, SAW, VCO, and YTO) containing ready-to-use typical oscillator structures for fixed frequency (XTO, SAW) and tunable (VCO, YTO) oscillators in various frequency ranges. A component library (Components) provides useful building blocks for oscillator design. Included is a selection of circuits that simulate component behavior (Component Characterization) and support characterization of both 1-port and 2-port circuits.
