Colpitts oscillator: Working and Design using opamp

colpitts oscillator

Colpitts oscillator is another type of oscillator design used to produce an oscillation at a certain frequency. It was invented by the American engineer Edwin H. Colpitts in 1918. In our previous articles, we explain about Oscillator circuit and Hartley oscillator in detail. In this tutorial, we are going to explain Colpitts oscillator circuit, basics in brief. It is designed for the generation of high-frequency sinusoidal oscillations with the radio frequencies typically ranging from 10 KHz to 300 MHz. The main distinguish feature of ¬†Colpitts oscillator is that the it take feedback from the active device from the voltage divider Read More …
