This paper presents a 77-GHz CMOS frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) frequency synthesizer with the capability of reconfigurable chirps. The frequency-sweep range and sweep time of the chirp signals can be reconfigured every cycle such that the frequency-hopping random chirp signal can be realized for an FMCW radar transceiver. The frequency synthesizer adopts the fractional-N phase-locked-loop technique and is fully integrated in TSMC 65-nm digital CMOS technology. The silicon area of… CONTINUE READING
