Summary: 
We propose a Simulink model of a ring oscillator using saturating integrators. The oscillator's period is tuned via the saturation time of the integrators. Thus, timing jitters due to white and flicker noises are easily introduced into the model, enabling an efficient phase noise evaluation before transistor-level circuit design.
