Design of a High Performance 5.0 GHz Low Phase Noise0.35μm CMOS Voltage Controlled Oscillator

Mohammed A. Aqeeli and Zhirun Hu

Abstract—This paper describes how a novel low phase noise Figure of Merit (FOM), LC-tank voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) is presented. The work presents a fully integrated 5.0 GHz VCO designed in a 0.35µm CMOS process. The proposed VCO features a worst-case phase noise of -133.07 dBc/Hz and - 136.31 dBc/Hz at 600 kHz and 1 MHz frequency offset. An optimization technique is used to design the excellent FOM. The FOM is -206. 20 dBc/Hz. It features a supply of 2.4 V, a core of only 1.0 mA.

Index Terms—Design method, figure of merit, low phase noise, tuning range.
