Phase-locked loop synthesizer simulation. (CD-ROM included).
Phase-locked loop A phase-locked loop or phase lock loop (PLL) is an electronic control system that generates a signal that has a fixed relation to the phase of a "reference" signal. A phase-locked loop circuit responds to both the frequency and the phase of the input signals, automatically synthesizer synthesizer

Limiting treatment of phase-locked loop theory to the basics, Bianchi (a senior microwave engineer at SDS 1. (company) SDS - Scientific Data Systems.

Technology, Italy) primarily intends this work as a description of the calculation of phase-locked loop performance by use of standard mathematical or circuit analysis programs like MATHCAD and SIMETRIX. He describes the operation of the phase detector, loop filter, VCO (1) (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) An oscillator that can be tuned over a wide range of frequencies by applying a voltage (tuning voltage) to it. Used in many applications such as radio tuners, VCOs are less costly than crystal oscillators, but not as stable. and crystal oscillator, and frequency divider. He then discusses the fractional frequency divider with analog and digital compensation. In what he describes as the core chapter, he describes in detail how to calculate and optimize performance, mainly dealing with stability, phase noise, and settling time. The final chapter considers miscellaneous topics, including testing and debugging, sampled phase-locked loops, multiloop synthesizers, and the direct digital synthesizer. The CD-ROM contains all the book's analyses in MATHCAD and SIMETRIX, with user-variable parameters and configuration
