Abstract [en]

Linearity and efficiency are important parameters in determining the performance of any wireless transmitter. Pulse-width modulation (PWM) based transmitters offer high efficiency but suffer from low linearity due to image and aliasing distortions. Although the problem of linearity can be addressed by using an aliasing-free PWM (AF-PWM), these transmitters have a lower efficiency as they can only use linear power amplifiers (PAs). Moreover, an all-digital implementation of such transmitters is not possible. The aliasing-compensated PWM transmitter (AC-PWMT) has a higher efficiency due to the use of switch-mode PAs (SMPAs) but uses outphasing to eliminate image and aliasing distortions and requires a larger silicon area. In this study, the authors propose a novel transmitter that eliminates both aliasing and image distortions while using a single SMPA. The transmitter can be implemented using all-digital techniques and achieves a higher efficiency as compared to both AF-PWM and AC-PWM based transmitters. Measurement results show an improvement of 11.3, 7.2, and 4.3 dBc in the ACLR as compared to the carrier-based PWM transmitter (C-PWMT), AF-PWMT, and AC-PWMT, respectively. The efficiency of the proposed transmitter is similar to that of C-PWMT, which is an improvement of 5% over AF-PWMT.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents two novel transmitter architectures based on the combination of radio-frequency pulse-width modulation and multiphase pulse-width modulation. The proposed transmitter architectures provide good amplitude resolution and large dynamic range at high carrier frequency, which is problematic with existing radio-frequency pulse-width modulation based transmitters. They also have better power efficiency and smaller chip area compared to multiphase pulse-width modulation based transmitters.

Abstract [en]

A technique to abbreviate the supply sensitivity of CMOS ring oscillators is presented. By switching the power source from the noisy power supply to a battery during sensitive zero crossings the noise performance of the ring oscillator is improved. The proposed technique can be used in conjunction with other regulation techniques to enhance the performance of ring oscillators in phase locked loops. The proposed switching circuit using a pseudo differential ring oscillator are designed in a 65 nm CMOS process to demonstrate the viability of the proposed scheme in deep submicron process with reduced voltage headroom. At 2 GHz the outputclock exhibits a jitter of less than 14 ps while subjected to a 500 mV noise tone at 500 MHz.

Abstract [en]

This paper reviews the design of watt-level integrated CMOS RF power amplifiers (PAs) and state-of-the-art results in the literature. To reach watt-level output power from a single-chip CMOS PA, two main strategies can be identified: use of high supply voltage and use of matching and power combination. High supply voltage limits are closely related to device design in the fabrication process. However, the maximum operating voltage can be improved by amplifier class selection, circuit solutions, and process modifications or mask changes. High output power can also be reached by the use of on-chip matching and power combination, commonly using on-chip transformers. Reliability often sets the limits for the PA design, and PA degradation mechanisms are reviewed. A compilation of state-of-the-art published results for linear and switched watt-level PAs, as well as a few fully integrated CMOS PAs, is presented and discussed.
