We report on the use of sputter-deposited, thin-film, aluminum nitride resonators as the feedback element in hybrid single-mode, combline, and voltage-controlled UHF and L-band oscillators. The resonators have also been cointegrated on the same substrate with 2 GHz BJTs. Design techniques and suggestions for novel architectures using this technology are presented.
