Abstract

Global clock synchronization is achieved autonomously by (1) phase locking to a reference PN (pseudorandom noise) clock, (2) detecting the lead/lag for the neighbors, and (3) fine tuning its own phase according to the decision fed back from the neighbors. The chip has been implemented by the TSMC 0.35 μm 1P4M digital process. An evaluation board of 5 modules has been implemented and measured For an initial jitter of 200 ps and skew of 800 ps, the output jitter is 47 ps and skew is 100 ps after lock on in a PC board environment.
