Phaselock techniques are often used to establish coherence. 2. A phaselocked loop can be used as a frequency demodulator, in which service it has superior. Phaselock Techniques, Third Edition is intended for practicingengineers, researchers, and graduate students. This criticallyacclaimed book has. Loading The author, Floyd M. Gardner an influential expert in the area of PLLs, has presented a good reference book that encompasses all.

Effects of Phase Noise.

The two loops could share the same operational integrator, as shown in Figure 5. A typical block diagram and phaselovk Unearized loop equations are shown in Figure 5.

Steady-State Limits The first topic considered is the input technjques range over which the loop gardber hold lock. Noisy oscillators can be enclosed in a loop and locked to a clean signal. A highpass characteristic is obtained; that is, the loop tracks low-frequency changes but cannot track high frequencies. Then the spectral density can be considered to have units of radVHz. One reason is that there has been little need for higher-order loops in the applications in which phaselock techniques are most commonly employed.

This philosophy underlay the first edition of this book, which was well received by its intended audience. Curve 6 is the exact result for a first-order loop and is described by 3. It has been the source tcehniques much puzzlement and is still rather mysterious. We apply a DC voltage Vj to the integrator of the loop filter. Since the formulas are cumbersome and since their derivation necessarily involved approxima- tions, the practicing engineer will usually find the curves of Figure 3.

Inspection phaseock the data points of Figure 3.

Self-acquisition is often a slow and unreliable process. Therefore, we should speak of phase acquisition, frequency acquisition, and so forth, up to n forms of acquisition for an nth-order loop.

These transfer functions may be rewritten as 2. Long mathematical derivations have been avoided on the premise that they are of little interest to the practicing engineer. Miscellaneous Features The most important descriptors of gardned operation are the pdf and variance of the phase error, reduced modulo 1-n, and the slip statistics. Because it has frequency memory, a second-order loop retains its phase information much better than a first-order loop.


Let us consider the loop model of Figure 6. The transistor or other device should be operated in a low-noise condition and, of course, a low-noise transistor should be used. The PD output voltage is observed on an oscilloscope and the modula- tion index is varied, starting at small deviation. Several examples are shown in Figure 4. A block diagram and pertinent equations are shown in Figure S. He tecniques the pull-in voltages associated with triangular and sawtooth PDs and observed that these are larger than for sinusoidal PDs.

Without smoothing, the indication will flicker on and off because of noise, giving false indications of lock or loss of lock.

The unstable singularity is called a saddle point; the loop state cannot remain at a saddle point indefinitely because any slight disturbance sets it on an active trajectory. In more challenging applications, pull-in is almost always found to be unsatisfactory or unusable and some form of aided acquisition is needed. If the initial phase error is very close to the unstable null, the phase can dwell near the null for an extended time, as illustrated by the two upper curves of Figure S.

Would you like to change to the site? The magnitude of the output voltage, relative to that obtained from a noisefree stable input, provides a measure of the quality of lock.

Frequency multipliers and dividers can be built by using PLLs. One obvious application of phaselock is in automatic frequency control AFC. References 63 Behavior of a second-order loop is quite different.

Starting at the high-frequency end of the noise spectrum disposes of the simplest explanations first. Lock Limits Table 4. On the downside, though the book has covered all the topics with great mathematical detail, it is devoid of numerical examples.


If sinusoidal phase modulation of peak Nonlinear Tracking: However, that problem can be accommodated by imposing the high-frequency cutoff; no circuit can have infinite bandwidth. The lag-lead filter for the familiar second-order loop see Chapters 2 and 4 has one pole and one zero. It is sometimes necessary to track an accelerating phase without incur- ring steady-state tracking error.

An oscillator is injection locked by adding the incoming signal directly into the oscillator’s tuned circuit. When the loop locks, the indication voltage appears and forces the switches into their narrowband position. When used in this manner, the smoothed voltage is sometimes known as the “correlation” output. Gardner No preview available – Frequency Acquisition 83 When the loop locks, the integrator has exactly the right charge needed to hold the VCO at the signal frequency.

Another simple filter is provided by an RC lag network Figure A. The effect of phase errors is covered in later chapters. For this reason, much of the literature impUes that a passive filter is somehow the “natural” filter configuration, while the idea of an active filter often gets short shrift.

Since spectral density is formally defined as the Fourier transform of the autocorrelation, the meaning of the “spectrum” is not clear. Those famiUar with servos will recognize it as the velocity-error coefficient.

The effect of a static phase error is expounded in Refs. Equipment designers were compelled to avoid DC amplifiers and therefore used only passive filters. We argue here that a higher-order loop has nearly the same lock limit.

The assumption of time-invariant 9g has impUed an open loop; if the loop were closed, the noise would frequency modulate die VCO and Bg would fluctuate in random fashion. Because of the practical importance of a second-order PLL, numerous approximate analyses have been devised.
