A MOS VCO which has improved linearity of oscillation frequency versus control voltage and has no 1/2 divider is studied. The improved VCO characteristic has been obtained by the use of only two additional transistors, one of which has a role of a load and another of which has a role of a control current source in a differential type delay cell.
