General Seminar

Frequency synthesis and modulation by the DS fractional-N PLL are essential in modern wireless transceivers. In addition to loop parameter variability, leakage current, and matching problems, the DS fractional-N PLL needs to deal with quantization noise and nonlinearity in consideration of phase noise, spur, and settling time. In this talk, various fractional-N PLL architectures (analog/digital/hybrid) and recent circuit techniques for mitigating quantization and nonlinearity will be presented. Also, PLL-based modulation methods (1-point/2-point/2+-point) will be discussed.

Spectrum efficient modulations with high peak-to-average-power ratios (PAPR) are widely employed in many high-performance wireless communication systems from low-GHz software-defined radios to 5G mm-Wave links. This growing trend has posed stringent requirements on next-generation power amplifier (PA) designs and transmitter architectures.

Delta-Sigma architectures are usually the best choice for high resolution analog-to-digital converters. But when the input is multiplexed from a number of inputs, they cannot be used directly. The memory in the modulator and the decimation filter results in inter-sample interference. To eliminate this, the conversion cycle has to be made long enough for the impulse response of the modulator and decimator to die out before applying the next sample. This results in a substantially lower sampling rate than when the Delta-Sigma ADC is used continuously.
