We propose and demonstrate a 20 ps time-to-digital converter (TDC) in 90 nm digital CMOS. It is used as a phase/frequency detector and charge pump replacement in an all-digital PLL for a fully-compliant GSM transceiver. The TDC core is based on a pseudo-differential digital architecture that makes it insensitive to NMOS and PMOS mismatches. The time(More)
An integrated digitally-controlled crystal oscillator (DCXO) is presented that generates both 38.4 MHz and also a 32.768 kHz real time clock (RTC) from a single 38.4 MHz crystal. The DCXO can startup independently and transition seamlessly in and out of software control. The tuning range is 280 ppm with 2 ppb/step and guaranteed monotonicity. The phase(More)
