Characterization of 1.2GHz Phase Locked Loops and Voltage Controlled Oscillators in a Total Dose Radiation Environment


Radiation hardness is an important consideration for Phase Locked Loops (PLLs) intended for space applications. Total dose radiation hardness of analog intensive circuits such as PLLs are of special interest as they do not lend themselves to calibration or redundancy techniques as readily as digital circuitry. This work summarizes measurement results… (More)
