By employing alternating current source transistors, the structure combines the benefits of low supply voltage operation of conventional NMOS cross-coupled oscillators together with high current efficiency of the complementary push-pull oscillators. In addition, the 1/f noise upconversion is also reduced. The 40nm CMOS prototype exhibits an average FoM of 189.5 dBc/Hz over 4–5 GHz tuning range, dissipating 0.5mW from 0.5V power supply, while abiding by the technology manufacturing rules.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||Switching current source oscillator;VCO;DCO;Transformer;Ultra-low voltage/power oscillators||DOI:||10.1109/RFIC.2015.7337735||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of 2015 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium 2015||Conference Details:||2015 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, Phoenix, Arizona, USA, 17 - 19 May 2015|
