  • Publication number: 20190180931
    Abstract: Disclosed are an inductor layout and an integrated circuit device with improved isolation between inductors through shielding magnetic coupling between the inductors. first and second inductor coils are horizontally spaced apart from each other. A conductor loop is disposed in parallel above the first inductor coil and shields magnetic coupling between the first and second inductor coils in the manner that a part of magnetic flux of a first time-varying magnetic field generated by the second inductor coil is cancelled by magnetic flux of a second magnetic field generated by an induction current that flows in the conductor loop magnetically interlinked with the first time-varying magnetic field. The inductor layout can be applied to an RFIC device to reduce magnetic coupling between inductors of a power amplifier and an oscillator. Improved performance of the device and a very small RFIC can be achieved.

  • Patent number: 10003345
    Abstract: A clock and data recovery circuit is disclosed herein. The clock and data recovery circuit includes a phase detection unit, a charge pump, a loop filter, a voltage control oscillator, and a frequency detection unit. The voltage control oscillator has oscillation frequency that is variable in response to a frequency adjustment signal, and outputs an oscillation signal. The frequency detection unit includes a reference clock divider, a counter, and an oscillation frequency control unit. The reference clock divider generates a count-enable signal based on a reference clock signal. The counter generates an oscillation count signal by counting the pulses of the oscillation signal of the voltage control oscillator or the pulses of divided signals resulting from dividing the oscillation signal while the count-enable signal is being enabled. The oscillation frequency control unit compares a target count value with the value of the oscillation count signal, and outputs the frequency adjustment signal.
