# I want to make an oscillator with 160 MHz

I want this for my project. So I have decided to make a basic Wien bridge oscillator.

$$f = \frac{1}{2\pi R C}$$

So if I choose a capacitor of 0.1 nano farads and a resistor of 10 ohms, I should get around 160 MHz. Will I get the 160 MHz, I heard that a wine bridge cancels out higher frequencies.

• I'd forget the Wien bridge. (10 pF, 100 ohm.. but you still need gain of three(+)) For that type of frequency look into an LC and a transistor. – George Herold Sep 2 '14 at 22:00
• why would you change values to 10pF and 100 ohm. – user124627 Sep 3 '14 at 3:11
• 100Ω resistors are much more common than 10Ω. – duskwuff Sep 3 '14 at 5:37
• @user124627, You'll want to do this with an opamp? I figured the opmap will be happier with 100 ohms. It's an easier impedance for the opamp to drive. (less current requirement.) – George Herold Sep 3 '14 at 13:11
