In this chapter the design and application of the GaAs FET as microwave oscillators has been covered. It was seen that the introduction of external elements is usually necessary to induce negative resistance conditions. Apart from the relatively poor close to carrier noise performance of free running GaAs FET oscillators, their other features appear quite attractive. The compatibility of FET oscillator circuits and ceramic resonators have resulted in improved performance of stabilized sources. Electronic tuning capabilities of GaAs FET oscillators using varactor diodes and VIG resonators are impressive and will form important building blocks for microwave systems.
