tank circuit

[′taŋk ‚sər·kət]
(electronics)
A circuit which exhibits resonance at one or more frequencies, and which is capable of storing electric energy over a band of frequencies continuously distributed about the resonant frequency, such as a coil and capacitor in parallel. Also known as electrical resonator; tank.

However, this article will show that the proper design of the tank circuit allows the design to meet the phase noise specification.
The Q-factor of the tank circuit is primarily limited by the inductor Q, which is approximately 10 at 5 to 6 GHz.
In the tank circuit, total capacitance is the addition of the capacitances from a group of MOSFETs (N1 to N8) and varactors (D1 and D2).
The tank circuit of a typical VCO has a parallel tuned circuit consisting of an inductance L, a fixed capacitance [C.
A VCO may be modeled as a tank circuit and a positive feed back amplifier (Figure 2).
It is obvious that the oscillation frequency in the series tank circuit is
Figure 5 shows the analysis of an LC tank circuit for a Bluetooth VCO.
558 pF tank circuit produces a rapid change in the reflection phase on either side of the resonant frequency, making it the best L/C combination for the proposed resonator.
In this example, R2 provides the negative feedback and the design uses a tank circuit at the collector of Q2, which removes undesired capacitance and permits higher frequency operation.
