In this paper a modified frequency multiplier based on a low power duty cycle corrector is presented. The proposed circuit multiplies the output frequency of a PLL, by 3. Also, the output duty cycle of the multiplier could be controlled by changing the ratio of charging/discharging current of the charge pump. This circuit is simulated by using 0.18 um CMOS process. When the VCO operates at 846MHz the power dissipation of the circuit is 1.16mW at 1.8V supply voltage.
