—MEMS-based oscillators have recently become a topic of interest as integrated alternatives are sought for quartz-based frequency references. When seeking a programmable solution, a key component of such systems is a low power, low area fractional -N synthesizer, which also provides a convenient path for compensating changes in the MEMS resonant frequency(More)
– High speed serial data transceivers often employ sophisticated communication techniques to balance out the effects of material loss and reflections. Link control hardware is required to initialize and adapt the link in a variety of signaling environments, often using loops with time constants which are orders of magnitude larger than the data unit(More)
In this paper, a new technique for characterization of digital-to-analog converters (DAC) used in wideband applications is described. Unlike the standard narrowband approach, this technique employs Least Square Estimation to characterize the DAC from dc to any target frequency. Characterization is performed using a random sequence with certain temporal and(More)
