This paper presents an optimized 24 GHz frequency synthesizer for low-power multi-tone radar systems and discusses the underlying design considerations as well as the circuit and system concepts. Core component is a fast locking phase locked loop (PLL) with a 24 GHz voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The system shows a total turn-on and lock time below 50… CONTINUE READING
