This paper presents a low-power low-jitter digital DLL-based frequency multiplier in 90-nm CMOS. In order to reduce the jitter and power consumption due to dithering in the lock condition, digital DLL operates in the open-loop mode after locking. To keep track of any potential phase error introduced by the environmental variations, a compensation mechanism is employed. The proposed frequency multiplier operates at 2-GHz utilizing a 1-V supply. It occupies 0.037 mm2 of active area and dissipates 7-mW power at 2-GHz. The measured peak-to-peak and rms clock jitter at the output of the frequency multiplier are 9.5 ps and 1.6 ps, respectively.
