This paper presents the design of a fully-integrated CMOS frequency synthesizer for PCS- and cellular-CDMA wireless systems. The proposed charge-averaging charge pump scheme suppresses fractional spurs and the VCO combined with coarse tuning improves phase noise characteristics. The improved architecture of the dual-path loop filter makes it possible to implement a large time constant on a chip. Fabricated in 0.35-/spl mu/m CMOS technology, this circuit provides 10 kHz channel spacing with phase noise of -106 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset. Power dissipation is 60 mW with 3.0 V supply.
