This brief presents a wide frequency range
digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) with low
supply sensitivity and low power
consumption. We propose a compensation
scheme employing feedforward inverters to
suppress supply noise. Both wide frequency
range and fine resolution are obtained using
a hierarchical architecture consisting of a
coarse delay chain and an interpolator. The
proposed DCO was fabricated in a 0.13-μm
CMOS process. It successfully eliminates
noise components due to supply variation.
The phase noise at 1-MHz frequency offset
from the carrier frequency of 700 MHz is
−106.3 dBc/Hz. The frequency range of the
DCO is measured from 320 MHz to 1.25 GHz.
Analog-based phased-locked loop(PLL)
accompanies low supply voltage and has gate
leakage of transistors problem. Therefore,
ADPLL is adopted.
ADPLL can implemented in an LC tank type
with digitally controlled varactors or a ring
oscillator type. Ring oscillator type is used.
A wide-frequency-range DCO that is
insensitive to supply variation due to a
feedforward inverter in a single delay.
Fig. (a) shows the proposed supply compensation
scheme using only a single delay chain. This
method utilizes the feedforward inverter as a
supply compensator (“C”). The compensating
inverter transports the signals before the two
consecutive main drivers (“M”) do, unless the
delay of C is longer than twice theM delay. The
opposite polarities of the compensating and
main paths can annihilate the supply
dependence. If the delay of C is comparable with
that of two main inverters, C cancels supply
dependence without damaging absolute delay as
much as in the conventional latch compensator
because the proposed compensating inverter did
not complete transition when the node is flipped
back by the main driver. As a consequence, the
frequency of a ring oscillator with the proposed
compensator can operate at higher frequency.
The smaller the compensator is, the faster the
speed is, if it satisfies the condition of oscillation.
We designed a feedforward inverter whose pullup and pull-down path consists of two seriesconnected transistors. As we aforementioned,
this makes the delay of the stage independent of
supply variation in the same manner as
conventional supply compensation.
This paper presents an improved
compensation scheme for supply noise using
feedforward stages.
This figure shows the DCO architecture using
the proposed compensation scheme.
 This method can reduce the silicon area of
the DCO core by about half and its power
consumption by two thirds.

spectra without and with supply
The measured single-sideband (SSB)
phase noise with the proposed scheme is
shown in Fig. (e).The phase noise is −106.3
dBc/Hz at 1-MHz frequency offset from the
carrier frequency of 700 MHz. Although there
are some spurs in the region of the high
frequency offset, the spur level of the worst
case is below −100 dBc/Hz. The test chip
works at the frequency range from 320 MHz
to 1.25 GHz with integral nonlinearity of 4.0
LSB and differential nonlinearity of 0.6 LSB at
nominal voltage. The proposed compensator
eliminates almost all the spurs at various
carrier frequencies.
 The phase noise is 106.3 dBc/Hz at 1-MHz
freuqency offset from the carrier frequency of
700MHz.The proposed compensation worked
at a frequency range from 320 MHZ to
