Abstract:“Switched Biasing” is proposed as a new circuit technique that exploits an intriguing physical effect: cycling a MOS transistor between strong inversion and accumulation reduces its intrinsic 1/f noise. The technique is implemented in a 0.8mm CMOS sawtooth oscillator by periodically off-switching of the bias currents during time intervals that they are not contributing to the circuit
operation. Measurements show a reduction of the 1/f noise induced phase noise by more than 8 dB, while the power consumption is reduced by more than 30% as well.
