The wideband continuous frequency tuning is achieved using a tunable negative-inductance cell. Fabricated in a 0.35-μm SiGe BiCMOS process, the varactorless VCO achieves a continuous tuning range of 24.5%. An overall tuning range of 31% from 3.8 to 5.2 GHz is achieved when the continuous tuning is combined with a 2-bit switched capacitor array. The measured phase noise is -109.8 and -109.5 dBc/Hz at 1-MHz offset from a 3.8- and a 5.2-GHz carrier frequency. The proposed VCO has demonstrated performance that is better than other wideband varactorless VCOs in the literature. © 2010 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/57819||ISSN:||15498328||DOI:||10.1109/TCSI.2010.2046967|
