An ARM-ECS paper describing a cutting-edge design for supply-independent oscillators has been accepted for presentation at the International Solid State Circuits Conference 2017.
An ARM-ECS paper describing a low-power design for supply-independent relaxation oscillator has been accepted for presentation at the International Solid State Circuits Conference 2017. This paper, entitled “A 0.68nW/kHz Supply Independent Relaxation Oscillator with ±0.49%/V and 96ppm/ °C Stability”, demonstrates an oscillator design which compares favourably to state-of-the-art for watts-per-kHz, while still exhibiting comparable temperature and voltage stability characteristics. The design was validated as part of the Pipistrelle test-chip family.
