Abstract : A voltage controlled sweep oscillator system which is stepped in frequencies is described. Only discrete frequencies are provided by dividing the system into two segments wherein each segment comprises a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) in a phase-locked loop. A multiplexer provides one VCO signal to the output while the other VCO is stepping its frequency, and vice versa. Frequency control in each segment is achieved by comparing the divided output of a VCO with a reference frequency signal and making adjustments to cancel any errors that may appear.
