A new error correction circuit (ECC) for delay-locked loops (DLLs) using combinational logic and a “peeled” voltage-controlled delay line (VCDL) layout is proposed. The ECC can be used to mitigate missing output pulses due to single-event effects in scaled CMOS processes. The implementation of the ECC results in no significant area penalty or performance degradation of the DLL. Simulations at LETs up to 100 MeV-cm2/mg show that the ECC mitigates missing pulses in DLLs fabricated at features… CONTINUE READING
