A 6-GHz integer frequency synthesizer for SATA III applications in 0.18-μm CMOS technology

In this paper, a 6-GHz frequency synthesize (FS) for SATA III application by using 0.18-μm CMOS technology is presented. Multi-modulus divider (MMD) is utilized to achieve the function of spreading spectrum of SATA III. The complementary voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) is adopted for phase noise consideration. In order to reduce the locking time of… CONTINUE READING
