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.

The slew current is inserted at the jimction of R2 and C, not directly into the summing junction of the operational amplifier. Selected pages Title Page.

Since phase detector gain —and therefore, loop gain — is proportional to signal level, the loop bandwidth and damping both decrease automatically when the loop locks; no switches are needed. The two loops could share the same operational integrator, as shown in Figure 5. The correct expression for a phase detector with a sinusoidal characteristic should be from which it may be deduced that the maximum permissible rate of change of input frequency is If the input phaselpck should exceed this amount the loop will fall out of lock.

You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site. Discussion in this section concentrates mostly phaseloci second-order loops.

However, that problem can be accommodated by imposing the high-frequency cutoff; no circuit phaselck have infinite bandwidth.


It is evident that slipping becomes somewhat worse if damping is small. If coherent AGC is employed, the same effect can be obtained without switches. An inherent property of any such filter is that its frequency response is asymptotically flat, with zero phase, at high frequencies.

For the first-order loop with zero static phase error J,: However, slew limiting is not symmetri- cal; there is, in effect, some rectification of the beat-note. We can now see the reason for the predominance of second-order loops.

Slip spikes occur only while the instantaneous deviation is beyond the lock limit and the loop relocks as soon as the deviation returns within the loop bounds. Established concepts are reviewed critically and recommendations are offered for improved formulations.

It is caused by unwanted DC offsets in the active filter and in the phase detector. Effects of Phase Noise.

First, let us consider a loop with infinite DC gain. To avoid acquisition problems, the op amp selected should avoid slew limiting for any beat-note that might be encountered.

With each integrator there is associated a state variable of the loop: The plot of Figure 2. It garner reasonable, therefore, to consider the loop as a kind of filter that passes signals and rejects noise. If a particular application absolutely prohibits aided frequency acquisi- tion, then saturation can be avoided by providing DC feedback around the amplifier.


When used in this manner, the smoothed voltage is sometimes known as the “correlation” output. Unfortunately, frequency pull-in to zero beat does not assure rapid phaselocking gardndr a third-order loop. All of the foregoing nonlinear analysis, simulation, and measureinent appUes only to white noise.

The third memory can be helpful if input frequency is changing during a signal fade. The prediction is borne out by simulation results.

Care must be taken in reading phaselock literature to ascertain which definition is used by the ohaselock. For fullest understanding of the subject some familiarity with transfer functions in the Laplace transform notation, a background in feedback or servo theory, and a nodding acquaintance with noise and spectral analysis of stochastic processes are needed.

This criticallyacclaimed book has been thoroughly updated with new information andexpanded for greater depth. Therefore, acquisition-aid circuits are commonly used and it is not unusual to find them constituting half of the total circuitry in representative PLLs. Bandwidth may be changed by any of several methods. If slew limiting were symmetrical on positive and negative half-cycles, there still would be no difficulty. From Appendix A, it can be concluded that n’ has zero mean.

A slightly different explanation may provide a better understanding of loop operation.
