Abstract
Voltage Controlled Oscillators used in radar signal simulators usually employ piecewise approximation linearizers to compensate for non-linear frequency versus voltage tuning characteristics. A linearizer was developed which closely approximates an exponential (frequency/voltage) relationship found in many VCO's. The linearizer uses the forward biased (voltage/current) characteristic of p-n junction to provide exponential linearization in a simple, thermally-stable, wide band circuit.
