We studied the Fermi surface properties of YbCu$$_2$$Si$$_2$$ and YbCu$$_2$$Ge$$_2$$ with the tetragonal structure by measuring the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) oscillations, together with the energy band calculations. It was clarified that 4f electrons contribute to the Fermi surface of a valence fluctuating compound YbCu$$_2$$Si$$_2$$, but not to that of a divalent compound YbCu$$_2$$Ge$$_2$$. We also studied the heavy fermion properties of YbT$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ (T: Co, Rh, Ir) with the cubic caged structure. The metamagnetic behavior or an abrupt nonlinear increase of magnetization was observed. By measuring the electrical resistivity under pressure and magnetic field, we clarified that the electronic state close to the quantum critical point is realized in YbIr$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ at 5.2 GPa and also YbCo$$_2$$Zn$$_{20}$$ at ambient pressure.
