Development of Voltage-Controlled Oscillator 600-800mhz For Direct Conversion Receiver Architecture
In wireless communication devices, one of the unique challenges found is the requirement for the design with high efficiency and cost efficiency in mass production. Thus, in this work, we come out with a new design that uses lesser components and occupies relatively smaller PCB space. The paper presents the realization of better VCO to cover frequency band of 600-800 MHz to replace current VCO design in a two-way radio with direct conversion receiver architecture. This work can help further in cost reduction and allow better utilization on the PCB space for other enhancement circuitry that benefits customers.
