Phase noise generation in varactor-tuned oscillators is analyzed by an asymptotic perturbation technique. It is found out that 1/f noise and AM noise are converted into phase noise by first- and higher-order nonlinearities of the varactor. The deduced formula can be utilized in CAD for circuit evaluation/optimization of varactor-tuned osicillators.
