    An equivalent circuit which simulates the low-frequency dispersion in the transconductance and the output resistance of an ion-implanted InP JFET is presented. The dispersion consists of reductions in the transconductance and the output resistance occurring between 100 Hz and 1 MHz and involves...

    An integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) operating at 1.75 GHz is designed using the InGaP/GaAs HBT process. The proposed noise-removal circuit and FR-4 substrate structure in this paper show an improved characteristic of phase noise and a smaller VCO dimension, respectively. The...
