A survey of oscillator phase-noise
Analysis and simulation
Oscillator phase noise is of major concern in the design of transceivers used in modern wirelss digital communication devices. It dcreases the selectivity of the recievers and increases the bandwidth of the transmitted signals. This paper surveys the oscillator phase noise and covers three major aspects. The first of these is an introduction of phase noise in RF transceivers. The second one is analysis of existing theoretical models. The last one is a review of some simulation methods and software applicable to oscillator phase noise analysis.
