All-Digital Frequency Synthesizer in Deep-Submicron CMOS; This Book Describes Techniques for the Design and Implementation of an All-Digital RF Synthesizer

DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sept. 21, 2006— Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "All-Digital Frequency Synthesizer in Deep-Submicron CMOS" to their offering.

The design of RF synthesizers remains one of the most challenging tasks in mobile RF systems because they must meet very stringent requirements of a low-cost, low-power and low-voltage monolithic implementation while meeting the phase noise and switching transient specifications. The work presented here is an outcome of a recent investigation conducted to develop a synthesizer architecture that exploits the strong advantages of deep-submicron digital CMOS process technology as well as advances in digital VLSI design.

The underlying theme of the techniques presented here is to maximize a digitally-intensive implementation by operating in a synchronous phase domain. The chief benefit obtained with this architecture is to allow the integration of the RF front-end with the digital back-end onto a single silicon die using a standard ASIC design methodology. The ideas developed here have been implemented in a commercial deep-submicron CMOS process and demonstrated on a working silicon chip in a Bluetooth transmitter for short-range communications and will soon be announced for a commercial single-chip GSM phone.

Key Topics Covered Include:

-- Digitally-Controlled Oscillator (DCO)

-- Normalized DCO

-- All-Digital Phase-Locked Loop (ADPLL)

-- Application: ADPLL-Based Transmitter

-- Behavioral Modeling and Simulation

-- Implementation and Experimental Results
