This paper reports the performance and cost estimations in the early stage of a LC tank based Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) design. System-on-Chip (SoC) versus System-on-package (SoP) configurations is compared for electrical performance and cost of a 1.25 GHz voltage controlled oscillator. It is found that a single chip design is not always the best solution. We obtained the best figure of merit for a SoP implementation where only the inductors were put off-chip.
