A new low-jitter polyphase-filter-based frequency multiplier incorporating a phase error calibration circuit to reduce the phase errors is presented. Designing with a multiplication ratio of eight, it has been fabricated in a 0.13-mum CMOS process. For input frequency of 25 MHz, the measured jitter is 2.46 ps (rms) and plusmn9.33 ps (pk-pk) at 200-MHz output frequency, while achievable maximum static phase error of the calibration circuit is 2.4 ps. The calibration leads to the normalized rms jitter of 0.049%.
