|Title: ||2.4GHz fast hopping frequency synthesizer|
|Authors: ||Wong, Wallace Ming Yip|
|Issue Date: |
|Abstract: ||A 2.4GHz frequency synthesizer is proposed as a part of a low cost RF front end for ISM band applications. The frequency synthesizer employed a new dual loop architecture to improve the settling time, while keeping a fine frequency resolution.
With a settling time of 30μs, the frequency synthesizer is able to hop at 2k hop/s with less than 10% overhead. When utilized in a digital wireless system, the fast hopping rate is able to improve the efficient of the coding scheme and improve the performance of the system.
The frequency synthesizer includes a monolithic LC tank VCO with a phase noise performance of -94.728dBc/Hz, -113.2dBc/Hz and -118dBc/Hz at l00kHz, 600kHz and 1MHz offset respectively, with an innovative varactor design, the VCO is able to achieve a tuning range of 600MHz, from 1.8GHz to 2.4GHz. When designed in a 0.35lμm CMOS technology, the synthesizer drew 40mA from a 3V supply.|
