A 9.2–12GHz, 90nm digital fractional-N synthesizer with stochastic TDC calibration and −35/−41dBc integrated phase noise in the 5/2.5GHz bands


A 90nm CMOS, 9.2–12GHz digital fractional-N synthesizer for WLAN/WiMax is described. Stochastic calibration of time to digital conversion and a VCO phase noise minimization algorithm are used to achieve <−35dBc integrated phase nose (100Hz to 10MHz), in the 5–6GHz band with spurs below −60dBc.
