The oscillator is injection locked to a time-delayed version of its resonating voltage and its frequency is modulated by manipulating the phase and amplitude of injected current. The injection strength can be programmed for the DCO step size to be as fine as 9 kHz at 4 GHz. Alternatively, with large injection strength, the tuning range can reach up to 200 MHz. The proposed oscillator is experimentally verified in TSMC 40 nm digital CMOS.||Funding Details:||European Research Council||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits||Volume:||51||Issue:||6||Start page:||1347||End page:||1360||Copyright (published version):||2016 IEEE||Keywords:||All-digital PLL (ADPLL); Digital phase rotator (DPR); Digital-to-frequency converter (DFC); Digitally controlled delay (DCD); Digitally controlled oscillator (DCO); Multi-stage noise ΣΔ (MASH)||DOI:||10.1109/JSSC.2016.2539342||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
