This paper proposes a complete solution for the design and modeling of a switched-capacitor rotary traveling wave voltage controlled oscillator. The main point of the proposed methodology is to get a unique simulation and modeling environment, so we have focused on EDA tools interoperability. As a result, we get a complete flow for a 14.35 GHz VCO design and bottom-up verification, starting from electromagnetic and SPICE simulations and ending to behavioral model including phase noise. A complete hierarchical library including also block-level model is provided.
