K- and V-band CMOS differential subharmonic injection-locked frequency triplers (ILFTs) are proposed, analyzed, and designed. Based on the proposed ILFT structure, models for the injection-locking range and the output phase noise are developed. A K-band ILFT is designed and fabricated using 0.18-m standard CMOS technology. The measured injection-locking range is 1092 MHz with a dc power consumption of 0.45 mW and an input injection power of 4 dBm. The harmonic rejection ratios are 22.65, 30.58… CONTINUE READING
