A new class of quadrature phase oscillators based on cross-coupled differential pairs is introduced. This class contains eight possible circuits which produce four output voltages with phase differences of ±π or ±π/2, depending on the choice of output node, and does not require balanced differential-pair loads. Phase error analysis is provided along with experimental and simulation results using discrete MOS and BJT transistors as a proof of concept. © 2018 IEEE
