This report documents our Major Qualifying Project which involves the design of a Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) for Radio Frequency (RF) applications. As the electronics industry is always seeking for accurate and cheaper frequency sources that can be integrated in the increasing demand of front-end systems, our project aims to develop a design that has wideband linear tuning while being inexpensive compared to a comparable VCO. The project consists of theoretical research, design, and analysis of an oscillator configuration that can be tuned to various center frequencies within the operating range of 1.56 to 1.96 GHz. The design approach relies on computer simulations, using Keysight’s Advanced Design System (ADS) software.
