In this thesis, three different techniques pertinent to quadrature LO generation in high data rate and wideband RF transceivers are presented. Prototype designs are made to verify the performance of the proposed techniques, in three different technologies: IBM 130nm CMOS process, TSMC 65nm CMOS process and IBM 32nm SOI process. The three prototype designs also cover three different frequency bands, ranging from 5GHz to 74GHz. First, an LO generation scheme for a 21 GHz center-frequency, 4-GHz instantaneous bandwidth channelized receiver is presented. A single 1.33 GHz reference source is used to simultaneously generate 20 GHz and 22 GHz LOs with quadrature outputs. Injection locking is used instead of conventional PLL techniques allowing low-power quadrature generation. A harmonic-rich signal, containing both even and odd harmonics of the input reference signal, is generated using a digital pulse slimmer. Two ILO chains are used to lock on to the 10th and 11th harmonics of the reference signal generating the 20 GHz and the 22 GHz quadrature LOs respectively. The prototype design is implemented in IBM's 130 nm CMOS process, draws 110 mA from a 1.2 V supply and occupies an active area of 1.8 square-mm. Next, a wide-tuning range QVCO with a novel complimentary-coupling technique is presented. By using PMOS transistors for coupling two VCOs with NMOS gm-cells, it is shown that significant phase-noise improvement (7-9 dB) can be achieved over the traditional NMOS coupling. This breaks the trade-off between quadrature accuracy and phase-noise, allowing reasonable accuracy without a significant phase-noise hit. The proposed technique is frequency-insensitive, allowing robust coupling over a wide tuning range. A prototype design is done in TSMC 65nm process, with 4-bits of discrete tuning spanning the frequency range 4.6-7.8 GHz (52% FTR) while achieving a minimum FOM of 181.4dBc/Hz and a minimum FOMT of 196dBc/Hz. Finally, a wide tuning-range millimeter wave QVCO is presented that employs a modified transformer-based super-harmonic coupling technique. Using the proposed technique, together with custom-designed inductors and metal capacitors, a prototype is designed in IBM 32nm SOI technology with 6-bits of discrete tuning using switched capacitors. Full EM-extracted simulations show a tuning range of 53.84GHz to 73.59GHz, with an FOM of 173 dBc/Hz and an FOMT of 183 dBc/Hz. With 19.75GHz of tuning range around a 63.7GHz center frequency, the simulated FTR is 31%, surpassing all similar designs in the same band. A slight modification in the tank inductors would enable the QVCO to be employed in multiple mm-Wave bands (57-66 GHz communication band, 71-76 GHz E-band, and 76-77 GHz radar band).
