I'm wondering where to use this technique. Wireless devices often use frequency scaling, which is not viable with this kind of clock generation. Furthermore, since one phase value is available at only one location of the loop, only few clock sinks can be served directly at this location. With digital chips you have thousands of clock sinks, i.e. flipflops, so you need a mini clock tree ... and up goes the power. Parts Search
