This paper presents a fully integrated fractional-N frequency synthesizer that covers the entire frequency bands specified in the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n. A new approach is proposed for sampled loop filter in fractional-N PLLs to reduce reference spurs. The implementation is achieved in 90-nm standard CMOS technology. According to simulations the VCO has a… CONTINUE READING
