A 2 V 60 mW 900 MHz CMOS phase-locked loop is fabricated using a 0.6 /spl mu/m CMOS technology. The negative-G/sub m/ LC-tuned oscillator employs a variable impedance converter for frequency tuning, and shows a frequency range from 808 MHz to 920 MHz. When phase-locked to an 112.5 MHz reference, the measured phase noise of the 900 MHz output is -96.5 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset. Chip size is 2270/spl times/2600 /spl mu/m/sup 2/.
