A dividerless PLL with low power and low reference spur by aperture-phase detector and phase-to-analog converter
A 2.1-GHz dividerless PLL with low power, low reference spur and low in-band phase noise is introduced in this paper. A new phase detection mechanism using aperture-phase detector (APD) and phase-to-analog converter (PAC) ...
A super-resolution CMOS image sensor for bio-microfluidic imaging
A super-resolution CMOS image sensor is introduced in this paper for bio-microfluidic imaging. Compared to the traditional scientific CCD or CMOS image sensor, our design achieves the balance between high-sensitivity and ...
A 44-to-60GHz, 9.7dBm P1dB, 7.1% PAE power amplifier with 2D distributed power combining by metamaterial-based zero-phase-shifter in 65nm CMOS
With the use of metamaterial based zero-phase-shifter, a 2D distributed power combining network is developed to provide distributed amplification and power combining simultaneously. Measured results show that the fabricated ...
A 60GHz VCO with 25.8% tuning range by switching return-path in 65nm CMOS
This paper presents a novel inductive tuning method for 60GHz voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) design. A new inductor-loaded transformer is proposed by configuring different current return-paths in the secondary coil ...
