Abstract : A review is presented of four models for the analysis and design of tunnel diode oscillators: the small-signal linear model, the cubic approximation, the piecewise linearization, and the static I-V characteristic as measured. Particular emphasis is given to the small-signal linear model where a map in the resistance-inductance plane describes the frequency-domain behavior of the circuit. (Author)
