The phase noise performance of oscillators has become increasingly important because communications channels have become closer spaced and more heavily loaded, data transmission systems often require low phase noise, military EW and CCC systems are more sophisticated, and higher frequencies are being used by a variety of systems. Broadband voltage-controlled oscillators used in electronically tuned PLL applications, which are now common, are inherently noisy.
