- In electronics, the Barkhausen stability criterion is a mathematical condition to determine when a linear electronic circuit will oscillate.
- There are two conditions of Barkhausen Criteria which states that:
- The total phase shift around a loop, as the signal proceeds from input through amplifier, feedback network back to input again, completing a loop, is precisely $0^0$ or $360^0$, or of course an integral multiple of 2π radians.
- The magnitude of the product of the open loop gain of the amplifier (A) and the feedback factor β is unity.
- Since, by satisfying these conditions, the circuit works as an oscillator producing sustainable oscillation of frequency.
