Outline and Contributions
Part of the Analog Circuits and Signal Processing book series (ACSP)


Frequency synthesizers are used as local oscillators in all transceiver systems. It is paramount that those frequency synthesizers are low noise as their behavior affects the entire performance of the transmission system. The work presented in this monograph focuses on the research, study, and improved design and implementation of low-noise frequency synthesizers for multimode wireless local area network (WLAN) applications covering all IEEE802.11a, b, and g standards. Performed measurements on those synthesizers show the low noise obtained by the design presented in this work. Complete test results highlighting the superior behavior of the designed synthesizers are shown in both chapters 5 and 6.
