This paper presents a 0.13 um CMOS frequency divider realized with an injection-locking ring oscillator. This topology can achieve a larger input frequency range and better phase accuracy with respect to injection-locking LC oscillators because of the smoother slope of its phase-frequency plot. Post layout simulations show that the circuit is able to divide an input signal spanning from 7 to 19 GHz, although the available tuning range of the signal source limited the experimental verification to the interval 11-15 GHz, 31% locking range. The divider dissipates 3 mA from 1.2 V power supply.

Abstract

This paper presents a 0.13 um CMOS frequency divider realized with an injection-locking ring oscillator. This topology can achieve a larger input frequency range and better phase accuracy with respect to injection-locking LC oscillators because of the smoother slope of its phase-frequency plot. Post layout simulations show that the circuit is able to divide an input signal spanning from 7 to 19 GHz, although the available tuning range of the signal source limited the experimental verification to the interval 11-15 GHz, 31% locking range. The divider dissipates 3 mA from 1.2 V power supply.
