This practical reference offers a unified approach to phase-lock technology, spanning large and small signal-to-noise applications. It takes you from continuous-time systems through hybrid time-sampled systems to fractional-N synthesis techniques. The book also looks at bit-synchronization in the context of phased-lock loop methods. You find expanded coverage of frequency synthesis that examines techniques used to develop RFICs for WiMAX and WCDMA applications.
The book includes numerous computer simulation techniques that enable you to analyze phase-locked systems and create accurate simulation methods for noise. You get a precise, detailed explanation at Delta-Sigma techniques that give you a clearer understanding of fractional-N synthesis and let you develop your own Delta-Sigma methods. Moreover, this unique resource gives you new insight into how phase noise affects bit-error rate and the performance of transmitters and receivers. More than 1,500 equations and figures support key topics throughout the book.
