This paper describes an all-digital phase-locked loop based clock generator for a MIPI M-PHY serial link transmitter. The paper focuses on ADPLL phase accumulator speed optimization, PVT calibration, loop type changing criteria and power saving in phase digitization process. The experimental circuit is implemented in 40 nm CMOS and generates the MIPI M-PHY defined frequencies from 1.2 GHz to 5.8 GHz.
