This work presents a 21.7-to-27.8GHz frequency synthesizer in a 45nm CMOS process that combines a tuning range of 24.8%, a residual phase modulation of 2.57°rms (with integrated phase noise from 100kHz to 100MHz), and a total power dissipation of 40mW. Combined with a frequency multiplier-by-two circuit and a divider-by-two circuit in a sliding-IF configuration, the PLL provides the four source frequencies required by the IEEE 802.15.3c 60GHz communication standard. In addition, the attained phase noise makes it suitable for microwave links with higher-order modulation schemes used as the back-bone for 3G/LTE base-station networks.
