Abstract

Increased demands on crystal oscillator accuracy in production radios has required that oscillators be tuned in the factory to remove initial offset error. Generally, tuning is accomplished by adjustment of a mechanical variable capacitor. This method adds labor and decreases overall reliability of the product. Thus, a solid state tuning method is more desirable.
