A new fast-lock, low-power digital delay-locked loop (DLL) is presented. A subranging searching algorithm is employed to effectively make the loop locked within only four clock cycles. A half-delay circuit is utilized to cut down power consumption. The prototype DLL in a standard 0.13-µm CMOS process operates in the range from 50 MHz to 400 MHz with four clock cycle lock time and consumes 2.379 mW with 1-V supply at 400 MHz clock rate. The measured RMS jitter and peak-to-peak jitter at 400 MHz are 1.586 ps and 16.67 ps, respectively. It occupies an active area of 0.038 mm2.
