Microwave frequency generation in a spin torque oscillator (STO) with a tilted fixed layer magnetization is studied using numerical simulation of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert-Slonczewski equation. The dependence of the STO free layer precession frequency on drive current is determined as a function of fixed layer tilt angle. We find that zero-field STO operation is possible for almost all tilt angles, which allow for great freedom in choosing the detailed layer structure of the STO.
