Balsara , Senior Member, IEEE Abstract We present a single-chip fully compliant Bluetooth radio fabricated in a digital 130-nm CMOS process. The trans- ceiver is architectured from the ground up to be compatible with digital deep-submicron CMOS processes and be readily integrated with a digital baseband and application processor. The conventional RF frequency synthesizer architecture, based on the voltage-controlled oscillator and the phase/frequency detector and charge-pump combination, has been replaced with a digitally controlled oscillator and a time-to-digital converter, respectively. The transmitter architecture takes advantage of the wideband frequency modulation capability of the all-digital phase-locked loop with built-in automatic compensation to ensure modulation accuracy. The receiver employs a discrete-time architecture in which the RF signal is directly sampled and processed using analog and digital signal processing techniques. The complete chip also integrates power management functions and a digital base- band processor. Application of the presented ideas has resulted in significant area and power savings while producing structures that are amenable to migration to more advanced deep-submicron processes, as they become available. The entire IC occupies 10 mm P and consumes 28 mA during transmit and 41 mA during receive at 1.5-V supply.

I. INTRODUCTION D ESIGN flow and circuit techniques of contemporary trans- ceivers for multigigahertz mobile RF wireless applications are typically quite analog intensive and utilize process technolo- gies that are incompatible with a digital baseband (DBB) and application processor (AP). Nowadays, the DBB and AP de- signs constantly migrate to the most advanced deep-submicron Manuscript received April 18, 2004; revised June 24, 2004. R. B. Staszewski, K. Muhammad, D. Leipold, C.-M.
