    Hi all,
    this is my first time in this NG, then I hope my request isn't OT.

    I'm searching for paper related mathematical analysis of Colpitts and
    Hartley oscillator (I know the
    basic theory related 3-point oscillator), but I'm searchig for a in deep
    coverage about transistor oscillator design, with also comparison from
    Hartley oscillator with mutual inductance and Colpitts, and how I can
    proof the better amplitude stability for the Hartley compared Colpitts
    oscillator and so on.

    Thanks in advance if someone can help me...

    Third book from top of page:

    Introduction to Radio Frequency Design
    -- by Wes Hayward, W7ZOI.
    A thorough treatment of the fundamental methods of radio frequency design
    using mathematics as needed to develop intuition for RF circuits and
    systems. You'll find emphasis on applications of simple circuit models
    whenever possible. Prepares readers to actually design HF, VHF and UHF

    400 pages. First ARRL Edition, Fourth Printing, © 1994-2004, The American
    Radio Relay League, Inc. (ISBN: 0-87259-492-0) #4920 -- $39.95

    Don't let the title mislead you; it is an in-depth treatment.

    Perhaps a read of chapter 20 "Transistor Feedback Amplifiers" in "Transistors and
    Active Circuits" by John G Linvill and James F Gibbons would give a good start.

    Worked with Wes for a while at TriQuint, good guy. Got him to autograph my
    copy. He's got a new one out "Experimental Methods in Rf Design" that I
    haven't had a chance to look at yet.

    Get it. You won't be sorry.

    Planning on it but Rf work has been very hard to come by around here
    (Portland OR) the last few years since I left TriQuint. For family reasons I
    can't move to where it might be more plentiful. So have to tough it out the
    best I can here.

    When I do get a copy I plan on getting it autographed by Wes and Rick
    Campbell. Rick was working at TriQuint as well but he's still around the
    area working at Cascade Microtech now.

    "Oscillator Design & Computer Simulation" by Rhea. But don't expect it
    to say that one is better than the other -- it won't.

    Vacuum Tube Oscillators, W.A. Edson

    the most complete analysis I have seen (eg cf rhea)

    I understand. I'm not doing any RF work either. But, I enjoy reading about
    it and the book prompts me to dream of building some of the circuits. It's a
    good read even if you don't plan to do the work.

    I wish I could get my copies autographed.

    I'd like to say thank you to all guys that have spent some time
    to reply at my post, sincerely thanks...

    I'll check for your indication but I think also a good book is about
    Benjamin Parzen,
    I've write about this in other thread, but thisbooks seems untrovable, then,
    sigh, if anyone
    have it plz let me know...

    Thanks again

    I've got it, in PDF form (14Mb) :)

    I also have Heising, Salt and Frerking :)

    personally, I think Edsons book has more analytical stuff.

    UFFC produced a 20-CD collection, for IIRC US$50 a few years back. so I
    bought it.


    PS it would be naughty to give you a copy. But you can probably deduce
    my email address....

    POWERMOS Guest

    Yup, may be very help for me if you can share the electronic copy... let me
    know please, I'm searching


    POWERMOS Guest

    if you can, send it through RapidShare...

  14. Terry Given

    Terry Given Guest

    email me.


    POWERMOS Guest

    at what address...

  16. Terry Given

    Terry Given Guest

    I'll give you a hint (english obviously isnt your first language, so
    I'll assume you just didnt understand)

    Terry Given

    POWERMOS Guest

    yep you're right :) well if I understand I've to use underscore... right?

    Could you drop me a line at j k o l s t a d 7 1 with your real
    e-mail address regarding this?

    Try it both ways - the one that isn't right will get bounced. :)

    You probably can, at some cost[1] - find his snail mail address, ask him
    if he'd be so kind as to autograph your copy for you, and ship it to him
    in a reusable box and include a return postage sticker so that it doesn't
    cost him anything.

    Good Luck!
    [1] The price of shipping a book both ways.
