This paper describes the fundamental principle of novel push-push oscillators using hairpin-shaped split-ring resonators and their application to voltage controlled and injection locked oscillators for frequency synthesizers. The experimental results make it clear that the synthesizer systems discussed here have the advantages of high frequency operation, compact size and low power consumption. Experimental work has been carried out in the L band, but these systems can be applied to much higher frequencies.
