A phase prediction algorithm via the assistance of the DTC reduces the required TDC range, thus saving substantial power. Additionally, a fully digital calibration algorithm is presented and proved to validate the whole ADPLL system and improve the DTC linearity. At 1 V supply voltage, the measured time resolution of the DTC is 22 ps. The TDC resolution is also indirectly measured with a closed-loop 2.4 GHz ADPLL, where -95.3 dBc/Hz in-band phase noise corresponds to a worst-case TDC resolution of 22 ps.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||Digital-to-time converter (DTC); Time-to-digital converter (TDC); ADPLL; Ultra-low power; CMOS||DOI:||10.1109/ISCAS.2015.7169140||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) 2015||Conference Details:||2015 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), Lisbon, Portugal, 24 - 27 May 2015|
