An injection-locked oscillator topology is presented, based on MOS switches directly coupled to the LC tank of well-known LC oscillators. The direct injection-locking scheme features wide locking ranges, a very low input capacitance, and highest frequency capability. The direct locking and the tradeoff between power consumption and tank quality factor is verified through three test circuits in 0.13-/spl mu/m standard CMOS, aiming at input frequency ranges of 50, 40, and 15 GHz. The 40- and 50… CONTINUE READING
