Abstract

A design of ultra low-power voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) is presented and fabricated in TSMC 1P6M CMOS 0.18 μm technology. The power consumption is reduced by current-reused topology combined with PMOS and NMOS cross pair. Moreover, using differential Colpitts topology achieves low power consumption and also improves phase noise. The simulation results show that when the supply voltage is 1.8 V, the frequency tuning range is from 22.74 to 24.63 GHz, phase noise is -102:4 dBc/Hz @ 1 MHz, power consumption is merely 2.4mW and FOM is -186:1 dBc/Hz.
