  A voltage controlled oscillator, comprising: a first three-terminal device and a second three-terminal device coupled to each other in a push-push configuration; circuitry for a tunable phase coupling network coupled between respective first terminals of the first device and second devices; circuitry for a dynamically tuned coupled resonator network coupled to respective third terminals of the first and second devices through a tuning voltage network. The oscillator (see figure) includes a custom-designed voltage-controlled-oscillator (VCO) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), a dielectric resonator disk ("puck"), and two varactorcoupling circuits, all laid out on a mil (mm)-thick alumina substrate having a length and width of mm.   In this article, the broadband voltage‐controlled oscillator (VCO) using electronically controlled metamaterial transmission line based on varactor‐loaded split‐ring resonator (VLSRR) is presented. It is demonstrated that VLSRR coupled to microstrip line can lead to metamaterial transmission line with tuning capability. The negative effective permeability is realized by the VLSRR . A classic second-order coupled-capacitor Chebyshev bandpass filter using resonator of tunable active capacitor and inductor is presented. The low cost and small size of CMOS active components make the bandpass filter (BPF) attractive in fully integrated CMOS applications. The tunable active capacitor is designed to compensate active inductor’s resistance for resistive match in the resonator.
