In this thesis, a low-power, high-accuracy BJT-based temperature sensor is proposed, which consists of two main parts: a BJT-based dual-mode front-end (DMFE) and a tracking Delta-Sigma-Modulator (DSM). The front-end employs vertical PNP transistors, which, compared to NPNs, exhibit fewer non-idealities when biased at nA-level currents. The...

This paper presents a 0.01mm2 10MHz FLL-based RC frequency reference that does not require the use of resistors with complementary temperature coefficients (TCs), thus facilitating its implementation in a wide range of standard CMOS processes. Fabricated in a 0.18μm CMOS process, it achieves a frequency inaccuracy of ±0.28% from −45°C to 125°C...

Phase-locked loops (PLLs) are ubiquitous in many RF applications such as frequency synthesizers in wireline and wireless transceivers. In this project, a charge-sampling PLL has been designed, which employs a charge-domain sub-sampling phase detector. The high gain of the phase detector helps suppress the in-band phase noise, while the lowered...

Receivers for millimeter-wave (mm-wave) 5G, with the ability to detect a low-power desired signal, in the vicinity of large power blockers, require highly linear circuitry with a large power consumption. Suppressing the out-of-band blockers reduces this power consumption. N-path filters (NPFs) have recently been used to reject interferers in...
