  • Rouzbeh Kananizadeh, University of California, Davis (

    Harmonic boosting in solid state circuits using harmonic positive feedback

    In my talk I will introduce a new concept for harmonic boosting based on linear time invariant behavior of nonlinear devices. Based on a new perspective on nonlinear electronics, I will expain how different harmonics translate to each other. By trapping the translations in a loop, second harmonic power is boosted dramatically in an oscillator, yielding high second harmonic output power and state-of-the-art phase noise performance at high millimeter wave frequencies.
