Abstract:An accurate automatic tuning circuit for tuning the cutoff frequency and Q-factor of high-frequency bipolar filters is presented. The circuit is based on a voltage controlled quadrature oscillator (VCO). The frequency and the RMS (root mean square) amplitude of the oscillator output signal are locked to the frequency and the RMS amplitude of a reference signal, respectively. Special attention is paid to the actual Q-factor in the oscillator. Experimental results for a breadboard circuit operating from 136 to 317 kHz are presented
