Abstract

See full text

A delay locked loop has a voltage-controlled delay section and a mis-lock detecting circuit. The voltage-controlled delay sections comprises a plurality of controlled delay circuits, including a specific one. In the mis-lock detecting circuit, there are generated pulse signals, each having a pulse width equivalent to the delay time between the delayed signals output from the adjacent two of the controlled delay circuits preceding the specific controlled delayed circuit. Another pulse signal is generated, which has a pulse width equivalent to the delay time between the delayed signals output from adjacent two of the specific controlled delay circuit and the other controlled delay circuits following the specific one. These pulse signals are added, generating a pulse signal. The number of pulses this pulse signal has per a unit time is compared with the number of pulses a reference signal has per the unit time, thereby detecting whether the delay locked loop is normally locked or not.
