This paper presents a 2 GHz injection-locked PLL (ILPLL) with an injection-locked frequency divider (ILFD). Using a negative phase shift phenomenon of the ILFD, injection timing can be calibrated without a delay line. As a result, the proposed ILPLL achieves a simple background injection timing calibration for robustness of power supply variation. The test(More)
This brief presents an adaptive continuous-time linear equalizer (CTLE) and one-tap decision feedback equalizer (DFE) using the spectrum balancing (SB) method. The SB method is extended for not only CTLE but also DFE with the aid of gain characteristics of one-tap DFE. Thus, adaptation loops for each equalizer type are merged to a single loop. As a result,(More)
BACKGROUND Poor prognosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is partly attributed to the lack of significant tumor marker for accurate staging and prognostication. We have evaluated survivin, which is a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis family as a cancer marker associated with proliferation, angiogenesis, oral carcinogenesis, and OSCC patient(More)
The intestines and hearts of dogs were examined for Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina, and Dirofilaria immitis, after necropsy between June 26 and September 29, 2004 in Chuncheon, Korea. Of the 662 dogs examined, 6 were infected with T. canis (0.9%), 86 with T. leonina (13.0%). Fifty dogs were infected with D. immitis among 500 dogs examined (10.0%). Five(More)
A digital clock and data recovery (CDR) is presented, which employs a low supply sensitivity scheme for a digitally controlled oscillator (DCO). A coupling network comprising capacitors, resistors, and coupling buffers enhances the supply variation immunity of the DCO and mitigates the jitter performance degradation. A supply variationdependent bias(More)
A CMOS quadrature down-converter for a direct-conversion receiver of 5.15-5.825GHz wireless LAN is described. The down-converter consists of two sub-harmonic mixers, for I and Q channels, and an LO generation network. In order to prevent the low-frequency component generated by the even-order distortion of the transconductance stage from being leaked to the(More)
