254 Threads found on edaboard.com: Barkhausen Criterion
There are always lots of different definitions for phase margin.... it becomes sometimes quite confusiong.
The phase margin problem hapens when you have a feedback system.
I believe that the best definition is:
1- A feedback system becomes unstable if the total phase delay of the system is greater than or equal to 360 degrees (Bar

a phase shift oscillator is just basically a type of oscillator. a phase shift oscillator is a feedback oscillator. for a feedback circuit to be an oscillator it must satisfy two conditions (known as the barkhausen criterion). one is that the gain around the closed loop should be unity. and the phase shift around the closed loop should be zero.

When I design a ring osc VCO, I run into a problem when I want to simulate the delay cell's gain. I used a pseudo-differential delay element(Sungkyung Park et al.,Elec. Letters May,2001)

The frequency of oscillator should be:

Otherwise, you have to replace the transistor with its small signal model and calculate the loop gain. Finally, apply the barkhausen criterion to obtain an

you need to give an initial condition to start the oscillator, is it a 5 stage ring inverter based oscillator or 5 stage differential ring oscillator.For the former you need to just connect the inverters back to back, for the latter you need to set the gain of the differential pairs such that barkhausen criterion is satisfied.

An oscillator delivers some kind of energy. Where does it come from ?
Answer: Such a passive RC circuit as shown in the link has to be combined with an amplifier in order to work as an oscillator. This passive ladder has the task to produce at a certain frequency a phase shift of 180 deg. Combine it with an inverting amplifier (with the appropriat

OK, I´ll try to give you some hints.
In general, you have two alternatives to analyze the CLAPP oscillator:

When we design an oscillator, sometimes we design in terms of voltage, then we have to satisfy the barkhausen criterion: gain * feedback = 1. In this condition, feedback is mandatory.
But we also use the reflection coefficient to design an oscillator, in which case we have to satisfy the following:
Γin * Γs = 1. And usually in this co

The barkhausen criterion requires a loop gain of equal or larger than unity and a phase shift of 360 deg at a certain frequency.
In a typical ring oscillator the loop gain always is larger than unity. Each stage has an inherent delay, which can be increased using external capacitors.
There is one particular frequency Fo for which this total delay

According to the bode plot of the loop gain, at low frequency, the phase shift is 180 degree, while its gain is well above 1(0dB).
It is unstable when we refer to barkhausen criterion.

No, you can't.

Why simulators like HFSS and CST use (as a default) absolute convergence criterion not relative?

I suppose you misunderstood the meaning of the gain margin.
The original circuit is stable with a gain margin plus 7.6 dB (because at -180 deg the gain falls below zero dB) - that means you have to increase the gain by 7.6 dB to reach the stability limit.
That means: Under these conditions (stability limit) your circuit - after closing

The very old barkhausen criteria comes from control systems. It states that if and only if there are poles in the right half plane, the system will oscillate at the frequency where the nonlinearities reduce the loop gain to unity and also the loop phase is a multiple of 360 degrees. This is based on complex number theory.
