This thesis covers the design and SPICE simulation of a 2.5 Gb/s clock and data recovery integrated circuit suitable for a SONET OC-48 based system. Critical circuits, such as the VCO and the phase-detector were analyzed and simulated with SPICE in detail. The design is evaluated for compliance with the SONET standard specifications of phase noise, jitter,(More)
