The equivalent circuit for the Clapp oscillator is shown in Figure 3, restricted to the RF components that are important for the operation.
If the Clapp oscillator is drawn as shown in Figure 5 (introducing a virtual ground), then the four-pole switching operation be.
Two types of circuits were designed and tested: a multivibrator and a Clapp oscillator, both using GaAs chips with an 800 [mu]m gate width to develop the required +5 dBm LO drive level for the double-balanced mixer.
