A 300μW 1.9GHz CMOS Oscillator Utilizing Micromachined Resonators


A low-power, low phase-noise 1.9GHz RF oscillator is presented. The oscillator utilizes a single thin-film bulk acoustic wave resonator and was implemented in a standard 0.18μm CMOS process. This paper addresses design issues involved in co-designing micromachined resonators with CMOS circuitry to realize ultra-low power RF transceiver components. The… (More)
