RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

My Hobby Website:
Synchronous Oscillator - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I am trying to find information regarding the design of a synchronous
oscillator. Can anyone guide me to a source that I can use?

In what sense
do you want the oscillator to be synchronous?
If it is to synchronize
in an averaging sense to a reference frequency, the classic method is
a Phase Locked Loop approach.
Another meaning is that an oscillator
allways starts in a particular state eg rising slope of voltage, so
it is synchronous in a Phase sense. There have been designs published
in Designers' case Book (or Electronics Magazine?) over the pasr few
years for this application. I believe a website has been set up indexing
all of their published circuit notes.

I was interrupted half way thru by colleagues
demanding I buy them coffee.
Anyways, the website I was thinking
There is a search engine. Just
search under "synchronous oscillator"
