An improved voltage-controlled delay line for delay locked loops


This paper presents a new voltage controlled delay line (VCDL) for a 30-phase 500MHz DLL. The new VCDL circuit solves the problem of flicker noise caused by the tail current source. The post-simulation result indicates that the VCDL has moderate linearity range, low Processing-Voltage-Temperature (PVT) sensitivity and good noise resistance. It can be… (More)
