This paper describes a digital calibration scheme that corrects for phase spacing errors in a multiphase clock generating delay-locked loop (DLL). The calibration scheme employs sub-sampling using a frequency-offset clock with respect to the DLL reference clock, to measure phase-offsets. The phase-correction circuit uses one digital-to-analog converter across eight variable-delay buffers to reduce the area consumption by 62%. The test-chip, designed in a 130nm CMOS process, demonstrates a 8… CONTINUE READING
