We present the design, architecture and experimental results of the low jitter Clock and Data Recovery (CDR) and Phase Locked Loop (PLL) circuit in the Low-Power Gigabit Transceiver (lpGBT) ASIC. This circuit includes a low noise radiation-tolerant integrated LC-oscillator with a nominal frequency of 5.12 GHz to support a 10.24 Gbps uplink and a 2.56 Gbps downlink CDR. This CDR employs a novel loop architecture with a high-speed feed forward loop stabilization technique. A test circuit was fabricated in a 65 nm CMOS technology and has been tested experimentally for correct operation in the foreseen radiation environment.
How to cite
Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
