A spectral model for RF oscillators with power-law phase noise

Chorti, Arsenia and Brookes, Michael (2006) A spectral model for RF oscillators with power-law phase noise. IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers, 53 (9) . pp. 1989-1999. ISSN 1549-8328 [Article] (doi:10.1109/TCSI.2006.881182)


In this paper, we apply correlation theory methods to obtain a model for the near-carrier oscillator power-spectral density (PSD). Based on the measurement-driven representation of phase noise as a sum of power-law processes, we evaluate closed form expressions for the relevant oscillator autocorrelation functions. These expressions form the basis of an enhanced oscillator spectral model that has a Gaussian PSD at near-carrier frequencies followed by a sequence of power-law regions. New results for the effect of white phase noise, flicker phase noise and random walk frequency modulated phase noise on the near-carrier oscillator PSD are derived. In particular, in the case of 1/f phase noise, we show that despite its lack of stationarity it is possible to derive a closed form expression for its effect on an oscillator PSD and show that the oscillator output can be considered to be wide-sense stationary.
