- 4. <ul><li>A will amplify a signal on the input and then a proportion of the amplified signal will be fed back. If this is large enough to replace the original signal the system keeps generating an output. There are a few rules that determine the nature of the output. </li></ul><ul><li>These are stated in the Barkhausen Criterion. </li></ul><ul><li>It states: </li></ul><ul><li>For Sinusoidal Oscillation to occur at a single frequency we must have: </li></ul><ul><li>A loop gain of unity (A x B = 1) </li></ul><ul><li>A loop phase shift of zero (A + B = 0 or 360 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Condition 1 or 2 to be true only at a single frequency. </li></ul><ul><li>We will examine a range of sinusoidal oscillators. </li></ul>Oscillators
- 5. Wien Bridge Oscillator This uses a feedback network of the following form: Note the resistors have the same value as do the capacitors. As the input frequency is varied the output will have a different gain and phase relationship with the input. At one frequency the input and output will be in phase. R R C C Z S Z P Vout Vin

It also introduces different amounts of phase shift. </li></ul>R C V IN V OUT The maximum amount of phase shift available from a single R C combination is 90 .

- 20. ~650Hz Gain curve Phase curve Gain = ~0.035
- 21. From the graph: -180 degrees phase shift occurs at 650Hz The gain at this point equals approximately 0.035 Can we determine this from the equations? For this to equal 0 (-180 °) Oscillators
- 22. Now the gain – use: <ul><li>To use this to produce an oscillator we need an amplifier with the following characteristics: </li></ul><ul><li>Gain = 29 (to give loop gain of unity) </li></ul><ul><li>Phase shift of 180 (to give a loop phase shift of zero (360)) </li></ul>Oscillators

- 24. Tuned Collector L C Oscillator. <ul><li>This is a development of the four-resistor biased single stage transistor amplifier: </li></ul>From equivalent circuit analysis it can be shown that the gain of the amplifier depends (for a limited range) on the value of the collector resistor. If this is replaced by a tuned L C parallel network then we will have a gain which is dependent on frequency.
- 25. C L R The impedance of this network can be determined in the following way:
- 26. Example L = 10 mH, R = 10 , C = 10 nF. Plot the value of Z over the range: Oscillators

- 28. 15.9 kHz Oscillators
- 29. Zero phase shift occurs at about 15.9 kHz and this approximately coincides with the peak in the gain (within the limits of our results) Can we determine this from the equations? This must equal 0 so: Impedance at this frequency: Oscillators
- 30. Note: so If we use this parallel network instead of the collector resistor we will have an amplifier whose gain is frequency dependent. Oscillators
- 31. G MAX F R
- 32. The peak gain G MAX occurs at the resonant frequency F R . We now need to introduce feedback and this is done by converting the inductor of the parallel L C combination into a transformer and applying the feedback signal to the base. An extra capacitor is required to connect the other side of the transformer to ground for ac signals. Amplifier Feedback Oscillators
- 33. When the dc bias is set up the new capacitor has no effect and the new inductor acts like a short circuit. When operating a fraction of the output is generated across the new inductor and this is effectively between the base and ground. The amount of feedback is determined by the turns ratio TR of the transformer. If we arrange for the turns ratio of the transformer to have a value given by: Then we will have a Loop Gain of unity only at the peak gain and therefore this part of the criterion is met only at a single frequency. The Loop Phase Shift can be kept at 0 for all frequencies. Oscillation frequency is given by: Oscillators
- 34. Generalised Oscillator Circuit The circuit shows an inverting amplifier with three complex components connected to it. (These components could be inductors or capacitors) Oscillators Z 2 Z 3 Z 1 -A
- 35. This can be redrawn in the following way – Note Z 1 = jX 1 etc. R OUT is the output resistance of the amplifier Oscillators jX 1 jX 2 jX 3 R OUT Vin AVin - + ~
- 36. The load on the output Z LOAD of the amplifier is given by This allows us to determine the gain of the amplifier. Oscillators
- 37. Using j x j = -1 The feedback ratio for the network involves X1 and X2. The Loop Gain LG for the circuit is equal to Gain x Feedback
- 38. For this to be an oscillator the equation must have no j component and therefore: This means that for the above equation to be true the three components cannot be the same type (e.g. three capacitors) as this will produce a positive or negative result – there must be a mix e.g. two inductors and one capacitor. The Loop Gain equation is therefore: Oscillators
- 39. As this value must be positive it means that X2 and X3 must be of the same sign – they must be either capacitors or inductors. <ul><li>From this general design we can generate two oscillators: </li></ul><ul><li>X1 = Inductor X2 = Capacitor X3 = Capacitor </li></ul><ul><li>X1 = Capacitor X2 = Inductor X3 = Inductor </li></ul>Oscillators

- 41. Amplifier Gain Example If we need a 25kHz oscillator, What value of L 1 do we require and what should the gain of the amplifier equal? Oscillators 100pF 470pF L 1 -A

- 43. Amplifier Gain Example Determine the values of L 2 and L 3 if the oscillator is to operate at 10kHz Oscillators L 2 L 3 1nF -10
- 44. Crystal Oscillator <ul><li>A crystal oscillator is an electronic circuit that uses the mechanical resonance of a vibrating crystal of piezoelectric material to create an electrical signal with a very precise frequency. This frequency is commonly used to keep track of time (as in quartz wristwatches), to provide a stable clock signal for digital integrated circuits, and to stabilize frequencies for radio transmitters. </li></ul><ul><li>Using an amplifier and feedback, it is an especially accurate form of an electronic oscillator. The crystal used therein is sometimes called a "timing crystal". On schematic diagrams a crystal is sometimes labelled with the abbreviation XTAL . </li></ul>Oscillators
- 45. Crystal Modelling <ul><li>*A quartz crystal can be modelled as an electrical network with a low impedance (series) and a high impedance (parallel) resonance point spaced closely together. </li></ul>* The above text is taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_oscillator and is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License . Oscillators C 0 C 1 L 1 R 1
- 46. <ul><li>Adding additional capacitance across a crystal will cause the parallel resonance to shift downward. This can be used to adjust the frequency that a crystal oscillator oscillates at. Crystal manufacturers normally cut and trim their crystals to have a specified resonant frequency with a known 'load' capacitance added to the crystal. For example, a 6pF 32kHz crystal has a parallel resonance frequency of 32,768 Hz when a 6.0pF capacitor is placed across the crystal. Without this capacitance, the resonance frequency is higher than 32,768. </li></ul><ul><li>* The above text is taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_oscillator and is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License . </li></ul>Oscillators
