I can imagine many circuits belonging to this category, e.g. self oscillating inductive voltage converters. I guess, the battery suggest an efficient converter and this will be most likely a modern integrated boost converter with low quiescent current and voltage regulation.

You have already answered the question yourself by referring to LTC3108 in another thread, I think. Generally speaking, a self oscillating transformer voltage converter based on depletion mode transistors is the way to go. This can be possibly a simple one transistor circuit, but efficiency won't be as good as with LTC3108.

An electronic oscillator is an electronic circuit that produces a repetitive, oscillating electronic signal, often a sine wave or a square wave. Oscillators convert direct current (DC) from a power supply to an alternating current signal. They are widely used in many electronic devices. Common examples of signals generated by oscillators include si

I'll contradict the somewhat general claim in the post title. There are two problems involved with the original circuit:
- it's not oscillating with an 1:1:1 transformer because the load impedance is cancelling the positive feedback action. 1:1:0.5 (in terms of inductance) will already work.
- after changing the transformer ratio or increasing

EL panels appear as capacitors to the inverter. The panel with larger area will have larger capacitance. Either the inverter simply isn't able to produce enough voltage with the bigger load or, if it's a self oscillating inverter, the capacitance has stopped it oscillating altogether.

first things I would check are:
1) is the fet adequately heat sunk?
2) is there a chance the fet is oscillating at low frequency (like 10 MHz) and wiping itself out. Did you do a wideband stability analysis. I see a lot of funky things designed into LDMOS bias networks to kill low frequency oscillations.

There are oscillators that do have subharmonics. They are the Push-Push type of devices with two transistors. For example, each transistor is oscillating at 1 GHz, but because of the phasing of the Push-Push output structure, it looks like they are oscillating at 2 GHz. There would be a lot of 1 Ghz leakage though.

I would guess the inductor stops unwanted modes of oscillation from happening, like if it was a 3rd order crystal the L-C keeps if from oscillating at the 1st order frequency. The 0.01 uF is just a DC block to keep the Xtal IN from shorting out to ground.
22 pF in parallel with 470 nH implies the desired frequency of oscillation is around 50 MH

Check the output with CRO. The output voltage may be steady 4% dropped or may be oscillating with a ripple peak to peak 8%. If the output is steady 4% dropped then you have to increase the gain of error amp. If the output is oscillating then you have to reduce the gain of the error amp.

It sounds as though your circuit is unstable and oscillating at some unknown frequency. So make sure there is shielding between stages and adequate Vcc line decoupling.

It looks like the amplifier(s) are oscillating. It could be at a very high frequency. Have you kept the wire running to the input pin well away from the output pin?, Running the wire to the volume control in screened wire might help.

There are LO amplifiers in that chip, they may be oscillating. Check to see if you have enough power supply bypass caps, and that the source impedance is not too bad (note that data sheet specifies a 50 ohm source). Maybe put two 3 dB attenuators at the LO in to see if it goes away. Also make sure it is not a ripple on your power supply.
