In this paper, in order to achieve the low power consumption of programmable divider in a PLL frequency synthesizer, we propose a new prescaler method for low power consumption. A fixed prescaler is inserted in front of the (N +1/2) programmable divider which is designed based on the new principle. The divider ratio in the loop does not vary at all even if such a prescaler is utilized. Then the permissible delay periods of a programmable divider can be extended to two times as long as the conventional method, and the low power consumption and low cost in a PLL frequency synthesizer have been achieved.
