A wide range differentially tuned LC PLL using dual switched capacitor VCOs was designed in a 65 nm standard CMOS process for a forwarded clock link. Bandwidth and stability were maintained across the operating range by using open-loop auto frequency calibration (AFC) tuning techniques and an adaptively biased bit-sliced charge pump. The PLL is capable of supporting spread spectrum clock (SSC) modulation with a low peak VCO gain by limiting its operation to the high gain region of the varactors where the capacitance versus voltage curves exhibit the greatest linearity. The VCOs support a frequency range of 4.0-4.8 GHz and 5.87-6.4 GHz. The 2-UI jitter of the forwarded clock at 6.4 Gb/s is 0.9 ps RMS while the long term acumulated N-UI jitter for large N is 2.1 ps RMS.
