[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper presents a clock generator dedicated to front-end
processors for LCD and plasma monitor video applications. The topology
is based on a factorial DLL, which can support all kind of standards
(from VGA up to SXGA). Fabricated in a 2.5 V, 0.25 μm, 6-metal CMOS
VLSI process from STMicroelectronics, the maximum r.m.s. measured jitter
is 17 ps. The power consumption is 17 mW at 200 MHz output frequency.
The low cost area (0.08 mm<sup>2</sup>) and the fully integrated
structure make it well suited for such a video market
