Coarse-Fine VCO Design with a New Supply Noise Suppression Method

Abstract VCO as a ubiquitous circuit in many systems is highly demanding for the phase noises. Lowering the noise migrated from the power supply has been the trending topics for many years. Considering the Ring Oscillator(RO) based VCO is more sensitive to the supply noise, it is more significant to find out a useful technique to reduce the supply noise. Among the conventional supply noise reduction techniques such as filtering, channel length adjusting for the transistors, and the current noise mutual canceling, the new feature of the 28nm UTBB-FD-SOI process launched by the ST semiconductor offered a new method to reduce the noise, which is realized by allowing the circuit designer to dynamically control the threshold voltage. In this thesis, a ne... (more)
