We derive the dynamic equations governing the cross-coupled quadrature oscillator leading to an expression for the trade-off between signal quadrature and close-in phase noise. The theory shows that nonlinearity in the coupling transconductance results in AM-PM noise close to the carrier, which increases with the coupling strength. The results are compared with SPECTRE RF simulations.
