Hello, does anybody know that why a resistance is made in series with the control coltage of LC oscillator and in which range should be this resistance? Thanks
If you're set up for SPICE analysis then I'd just step through the practical range (0 - VDD) and observe waveshape and frequency; you can pick off the freq value by an expression and plot vs the vcoNT value (either in a decent waveform viewer, or exported to Excel). (...)
It surely is specified in the datasheets Notice that this is an IC design question, there's no datasheet, instead the IC designer (the OP) has to answer the question himself. I agree that the useful control voltage will be restricted by the linear PFD and vco linear range.
Hi everybody, I met a problem in PLL design. Actually design has finished, the problem found in verification. TI PLL chip 4816B is used, and follow is the external 2nd order LPF. 122208 For VCXO, we have several vendor to select. All of the VCXOs works well except one. The phenomena is the PLL will unlock with onl
I have created an integer and fractional PLL. The integer PLL is locking fine. The fractional PLL has a delta-sigma modulator which varies the feedback frequency divider modulus. Maybe that's why the control voltage on the vco is varying periodically? Is there a way to mitigate the periodic variation of (...)
My PLL output frequency is 8GHz.and I have a problem,my control voltage of vco variation is high? how can eleminate this issue? I have R=9k ohm and C1=80p and C2=2p ????
Actually a VFC is a vco, just with a broader frequency range, and without the feedBack control mechanism via PFD. So the noise calculation should be similar.
Only 45MHz ? Is that nominal , min or max? Being a linear vco with wide variations of stray and PN junction capacitance , nominal f is not precise. But figure 2 shows Cx=10 pF (1e-11) for Vf=Vrng=2V Both voltages can span from 1-5V but are more linear from 1.5 to 4.5V. Vrng is lowest range at 1V I.e. 10%, while f increase (...)
Did you ever inspect the ring oscillator waveforms to understand how the current control works? There might be an unwanted voltage swing at the inner supply nodes. A standard vco technology uses differential stages, and if I remember right, (...)
You can sweep the control voltage of vco in transient simulation, collect the vco frequency data and handle them in excel to plot the frequency vs control voltage.

Do a pxf analysis and plot the outputs from the control voltage source (Signal) and the power supply (Noise). Look for the "-1" ref sideband to observe the frequencies that matter. Note their relative levels and model it as (...)
This is a loop filter used in the PLL loop. The input is current and the output is the control voltage of the vco Yes - that`s what I have expected. As said - derive the transfer function Vout/Iin and determine poles and zeros. This (...)
Hello from Greece !!! This is a voltage-controlled oscillator (vco). Αn oscillator that its frequency is controlled using a voltage signal. The vco described here provide both triangular and square wave output. The control (...)
Some original joysticks used the Pot to control a vco and thus frequency was the output, however DMM use constant current ( 0.0001mA to 1mA) to drive the probes and thus Resistance is the voltage on the probes.
Hi, I am new to vco, I am trying to design a vco at 2.5GHZ. but I found that the gain of my vco appear positive or negitive with the control voltage seems totally different from what I find in the textbook. I want to know why the gain of vco performance like that? (...)
I'm doing simulations on a vco using Cadence at the moment (relative n00b to Cadence). I've got my circuit functioning and have a plot of the transient performance of the circuit for a set control voltage. What I'd like to do is sweep my control voltage (...)
Hi, 1. I have attached transient response of the control voltage of my PLL in Cadence. This is NOT behavioral reponse. 2. From t=0 to 100us it is the startup time. No frequency step provided 3. At t=170us a frequency step of 40MHz (max size for the pll) is provided and resulting transient response is shown. The (...)
Hi all ! I have a vco IC with code MQK001-896-T7- 896MHZ. I find datasheet with link below : But i unknow frequency range output and control voltage range. Anyone that done,can help me ?Thank all!
Hi, i simulated my pll using simulink n time domain and ended up with peculiar control voltage even with 60 deg/75deg PM. Fig 1 shows the output of loop filter. Fig. 2 shows output after VDD saturation. I want my vco control voltage to slightly rise from 0 at t=0 (...)
I am designing LC vco using PMOS varactor in ADS. In typical LC vco, L and C values are selected according to the formula f=1/√LC. How to find the PMOS varactor width values?. Also oscillation frequency versus control voltage is plotted for this vco. very small (...)
77867 The image shown is a delay cell, where Vctrl is the control voltage. Where MC: a current source work in triode region MX: a negative resistance MK: adjustable resistor M+, M-: input pair Connecting the delay cells in a loop will form a vco. Next, given Kvco, how can i size the MOS in this (...)
Set the vco control voltage to zero and measure the locking time with a transient simulation.
Hello, Assuming that supply voltage and reference oscillator is spectrally clean, the phase comparator's output voltage is determined by the phase noise of the vco and the df/dVvco ratio. You should ignore the out of (...)
Hi, I am designing an LC vco , and when I plot the tuning sensitivity plot, i.e. frequency - voltage curve (varactor control) , with a larger number of steps, I get discontinuities in the curve, and errors at some values ... in other words, at couple of (...)
Hi , I am designing an LC vco ... So I need a varactor ... when I connect the varactors RIGHT, I mean the positive terminals to oscillating nets and the -ve terminal to ground, the oscillating frequency does not vary with varying control voltage ... So, I folded the varactors, it worked ! ... But with -ve (...)
Is your control loop stable? Did you take the loading from the vco side in to account while you designed the loop filter?
Hi, I have designed a 5 stage current starved vco in gpdk 90nm Cadence. I have seen in all papers and tutorials that the control voltage is swept from 0V to Vdd for plotting the tuning curve. But in my work control voltage is a sinusoidal voltage from (...)
Hi! I 've designed a 23 ghz fsk transmitter and i used a vco like you. I injected the modulating signal into the vco control voltage. We didn't see if the signal was continuous or what (because it didn't care to us), because the input signal already has a pulse shaping filter that smooth (...)
vco tuning voltage is usually low-pass filtered to make vco generate a stable frequency. In your case I would try to use a series R and parallel C for such low-pass filter.
I guess you are referring to phase noise here. I cannot give you a step by step procedure but you will have to focus on matching both w/i each stage and among stages. Having the control voltage modulating the current load does not seem as good as modulating the tail current (since the first method relies on matching of separate
Hi, Loop filter is to proved dc voltage to vco and hence vco provides frequency based upon input control voltage. There are calculations from loop filter for stable operation of PLL like Bandwidth, damping factor, natural frequrency, (...)
You should use automation test program such as HPVEE or LabView. You shoud write a routine to control your Power Supply and Spectrum Analyzer via GPIB interface and you can change the Tuning voltage and the Center frequency of SA by using "peak search" (...)
Hello all, I have a question. I believe everybody knows about Maneatis's symetrical load based delay cell. My question is this. Let's assume you are building a vco based on the delay cell to be used in a PLL. The control voltage is comming from the charge pump. The frequency of vco is proportional to the (...)
The centre frequency is the mean frequency of the upper frequency (when chargepump voltage is the highest) and the lowest frequency (when chargepump voltage is the lowest) of vco.
Hi, I am designing a PLL (output freq. 400MHz-500MHz,Supply=3.3V) and I am at the preliminary stage. I have done a behavioral model of the PLL using Verilog-A. I observe that the control voltage of vco goes beyond 3.3V initially before it locks to 500MHz at 3.3V. My vco gain is such that (...)
hi, please,can anyone tell me how to measure tunning range of vco in hspice?is it possible in hspice?if i sweep control voltage how it is possible to measure frequency exactly?if it is possible in cadence than how?what will be the settings? please help me,please You can sweep the control voltage (...)
you didnt make any comments at all about your power supply poor regulation and filtering on the PSU is one of the biggest causes of vco (or any osc. for that matter) instability cheers Dave
Hi Guys, I am simulating a vco with the following design: Process: 0.18 um Tool: Cadence Spectre Topology:Three stage Differential amplifier (with symmetric load) Supply: 3.3V Frequency: 2.4GHz I measured the phase noise and it was -100 dbc/Hz at 10 MHz. Is this a good performance? I am using a DC control (...)
Hi all , i am building a vco using tsmc0.13 - if anyone used it - there are several mos varactors in the kit , with 3 terminals (is the middle one for control voltage ?) i need to know what is the difference between them ? and which one to use? Thanks in advance.
Hi guys, When the PLL locks I zoom in the signal that controls the vco. The signals has periodic ripples that occurs at the speed of the PFD/CP. The controle voltage range is between 0 and VDD. The ripple represent 3.6% of VDD. Is that big or normal ? Are these ripples the responsible (...)
If you expect, that the vco control voltage represents the present oscillator frequency, it's simply it's waveform. There are however signal analyzers, that can measure frequency versus time directly. THank you, FvM. Have you used the signal analyzers? What's its name?
How to use calculator to plot the vco gain, freqency vs control voltage. Thanks
Considering power supply noise, if we want to decrease its effect on PLL, should we increase loop bandwidth or decrease bandwidth? If the vco is composed of transconductor (PMOS)+ICO+power match, I think the power supply noise has the some effect as the noise of loop filter on control (...)
I have different vcos and most of them have a different operating and tuning voltage, I want to control the combined region of the vcos i.e eg if I have 3 vcos from 50-100, 100-250, 250-500 I want a control circuitary by (...)
Thank you for ravirajdv and FvM. I have read a paper there is a start-up circuit in the vco. I have some quesiton about it. The fig is the schematic. When Vc(control voltage) is 0 . M5 is closed . and M11 and M4 is opened because start up (...)
In a type 2 PLL, it does not affect the static phase offset a bit., and it reduces the output jitter. The static phase offset is created only because of path mismatches in PFD and current and switching mismatches in CP. The control voltage will experience (...)
Hi; I am trying to use the capacitance of MOSCAP as a varactor in a vco deisgn. For a DC sweep, the MOSCAP capacitance changes and can be simulated. I have gone through some paper but i cant understand as how to characterize a MOSCAP capacitance for the case where there is a control (...)
Assume you mean the control voltage for a vco?? The shape and rate of this voltage will define the output spectrum of your oscillator. Often the goal is equal spaced spectral energy and this will be acheived by using saw tooth shaped sweep, with shortest (...)
Whatever negative or positive, the only important thing is that the kvco vs control voltage is monotonic.
