Paper Abstract

This paper describes a simulation method to compute oscillator phase noise which combines transient and periodic-transfer-function analyses, available in most of the commercial circuit simulators. The proposed calculation technique is simple to implement and provides the designer a deep insight into phase noise generation mechanisms for both stationary and cyclostationary sources, thus resulting a powerful tool to perform an optimum design in RF applications.
