A novel technique to obtain injection locked oscillators phase tuning beyond 180° is demonstrated. The idea is to cascade injection locked oscillators together for phase change accumualtion. A two stage injection locked oscillators can theoretically provide a maximum of 360° phase change within the locking range. This is particularly useful for phased array antenna applications.
