Abstract
We present a fully programmable frequency divider in two different versions operating at input frequencies from DC to 94 GHz and 92 GHz, respectively, for the use in wideband and highly stable millimeterwave frequency synthesizers. Using a parallel interface the division factors can be programmed to all integer values between 12 and 259. The high input speed in conjunction with programmability is achieved by a dualmodulus concept utilizing gates in emittercoupled logic with inductive shunt peaking and by merging logic functions into flipflops. The two versions utilize different differential spiral inductors. The frequency dividers were realized in a SiGe BiCMOS technology with fT = 250 GHz and are draining a current of 120 mA from a 3.3 V supply.
