  • A comparison between grounded and floating shield inductors for mmW VCOs 

    González Jiménez, José Luis; Aragonès Cervera, Xavier; Molina Garcia, Marc Manel; Martineau, Baudouin; Belot, Didier (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A floating-shield inductor implemented in CMOS process is compared with a conventional patterned ground shield inductor for the implementation of a LC voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) operating at mmW frequencies. ...

    This work presents the design procedure followed to obtain a low-power voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) robust against high-frequency substrate noise, using as a demonstrator a 2.5 GHz VCO with quadrature outputs (QVCO) ...
  • Effect of high frequency substrate noise on LC-VCOs 

    Molina Garcia, Marc Manel; Aragonès Cervera, Xavier; Mateo Peña, Diego; González Jiménez, José Luis (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents an experimental analysis of the performance degradation of an LC-Voltage Controlled Oscillator (LC-VCO) produced by high frequency noise present in the substrate. The spurs observed are shown to be ...
