 Abstract
Reconfigurable radio technology is needed to reconstruct frequency and modem functionality, which can be different in various regions. In addition, it makes a single mobile handset capable of supporting various standards of wireless communication and thus plays a key role in mobile convergence. An MMIC VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) has been developed for high power and wide bandwidth where Clapp-Gouriet type oscillators are adapted for series feedback, and was fabricated based on 0.15um pHEMT of TRW. The MMIC VCO was connected to an aluminar substrate on the carrier for testing. This MMIC VCO module showed good performance in comparison to existing works. Furthermore, it can be potentially extended to reconfigure an MMIC VCO for wireless systems such as military applications and satellite communications.
