This paper presents the design and simulation results for a multi-frequency oscillator based on comple- mentary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) microelec- tromechanical systems (MEMS) surface acoustic wave (SAW) resonator. Multi-frequency oscillator is simulated using 0.35 μm CMOS technology. The oscillator operated at 600 and 1.76 GHz. The multi-frequency oscillator shows phase noise performance of −67.35 and −92.83 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset frequency for 600 MHz and 1.76 GHz, respectively, during simulation. The pierce circuit topol- ogy was used to sustain the oscillation from CMOS SAW resonator. The sustaining circuit was design and fabricated in 0.35 μm CMOS technology process with 3.3 V supply. The measured S21 of sustaining circuit topology are 6 and 2 dB at 1.76 GHz and 600 MHz, respectively. The phase responses for 1.76 GHz and 600 MHz are −50° and –200° correspondingly.
