A new CMOS LC Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) for IEEE 802.11a application with low phase noise and consumed power less than 1mW is presented. This circuit was taped out by TSMC 0.18um 1P6M process. The measured phase noise is -115-88dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset at the operation frequency of 5.815GHz. And the dc core current consumption is 0.71mA at a supply voltage of 1.4 V. Its figure of merit (FOM) is -191dBc/Hz.
