A novel subharmonic injection-locked distributed oscillator is proposed and presented. A 5.2-GHz distributed oscillator is locked to a 2.6-GHz injection source. The injection source is applied to the feedback path between the collector line and the base line of the distributed oscillator for optimal locking range. The circuit is designed for 2.7-V operation. The developed oscillator delivers +3-dBm output power with a phase noise of - 110 dBc/Hz at 500-kHz offset at 5.2 GHz. © 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
