With a very small area of 0.007 that is comparable to conventional ring oscillators, this oscillator has 7–20 dB better phase noise FoM of 177 dB. It is widely tunable for nearly an octave from 2.66 to 4.97 GHz.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters||Volume:||25||Issue:||8||Start page:||520||End page:||522||Copyright (published version):||2015 IEEE||Keywords:||Class-D oscillator; LC oscillator; Low area; Low phase noise; Low-Q inductor; Nanoscale CMOS; Quadrature oscilator; Ring oscillator; Series LC; Wide tuning||DOI:||10.1109/LMWC.2015.2440663||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
