This work presents measured data an d analysis accurately comparing three, four-stage ring oscillators. The delay cell topologies considered here include the, linear source coupled, and two saturating types. Each oscillator is fabricated concurrently in a 1.8V, 18μm CMOS process and is characterized for phase noise, power consumption and tuning range.
