Abstract

This paper presents the design and implementation of a quadrature voltage-controlled ring oscillator with the improved figure of merit (FOM) using the four single-ended inverter topology. Furthermore, a new architecture to prevent the latch-up in even number of stages composed of single-ended ring inverters is proposed. The design is implemented in 0.18 μm CMOS technology and the measurement results show a FOM of -163.8 dBc/Hz with the phase noise of -125.8 dBc/Hz at 4MHz offset from the carrier frequency of 3.4 GHz. It exhibits a frequency tuning range from 1.23 GHz to 4.17 GHz with coarse and fine frequency tuning sensitivity of 1.08 MHz/mV and 120 kHz/mV, respectively.
