A 1-V 600μA CMOS Fractional-N Synthesizer with External Inductor QVCO for Med Radio Receiver

Dan Lei Yan, Zhao Bin, M. Kumarasamy Raja, and Minkyu Je
Abstract—An ultra-low-power low voltage fractional-N synthesizer with I, Q output for 401-406 MHz Medical Device Radio communications Service (Med Radio) receiver intended for wireless communication in biomedical sensor applications is implemented using 0.18-μm CMOS technology. The synthesizer consists of QVCO with external inductor, crystal oscillator, phase frequency detector, charge pump, prescaler and 2nd order delta sigma modulator. The fractional-N synthesizer achieves a phase noise of -106dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset while consuming less than 0.6mW from a 1-V supply voltage and occupying 0.5 mm² of die area

Index Terms—CMOS, fractional-N synthesizer, low-voltage low-power radio.
