I've come accross an oscillator circuit (first attached image, left), which is very similar to a common collector crystal Colpitts oscillator (right).
But it is not a common collector, as the load (hf transformmer) is placed in the collector node and output is taken from there.
I'm struggling to get rid of jitter on my Colpitts oscillator. It is currently oscillating at 15 kHz. The problem is that I am getting cycle-to-cycle jitter of up to 384 nS. Is it possible to get a lower cycle-to-cycle jitter with this kind of oscillator. What is a typical...
