The frequency synthesizer with two LC-VCOs is fully integrated in a 0.35-μm CMOS technology. In supporting dual bands, all building blocks except VCOs are shared. A current compensation scheme using a replica charge pump improves the linearity of the frequency synthesizer and, thus, suppresses spurious tones. To reduce the quantization noise from a ΔΣ modulator and the noise from the building blocks except the VCO, the proposed architecture uses a frequency doubler with a noise-insensitive duty-cycle correction circuit (DCC) in the reference clock path. Power consumption is 37.8 mW with a 2.7-V supply. The proposed frequency synthesizer supports 10-kHz channel spacing with the measured phase noise of -114 dBc/Hz and -141 dBc/Hz at 100-kHz and 1.25-MHz offsets, respectively, in the PCS band. The fractional spurious tone at 10-kHz offset is under -54 dBc.
