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.

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.
This saves board space and cost, and eliminates the difficult tank circuit design task.
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.
