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. 14 May concepts were introduced in by Floyd Gardner to describe the frequency .

Completely general analysis is blocked by this nonlinearity; all useful results require simplifying ap- proximations.

Such penalties are intolerable and that is why narrowband, phaselocked, track- ing receivers are used. Many portions of the present book owe their phaaelock to his gzrdner. The foregoing results apply only to loops with sinusoidal phase detec- tors. In principle, this kind of loop can never lose lock permanently.

Miscellaneous Applications of Phaselock Loops. Chapter Five Acquisition In all the preceding chapters, it is assumed tacitly that the loop is already in lock.

One techniquees their most important applications is in the reception of the very weak signals from distant spacecraft. Noise from any source falls off in the cutoff region, assuring a finite noise-variance contribution from high frequencies. It is sometimes necessary to track an accelerating phase without incur- ring steady-state tracking error. At this point we begin to encoimter mathematical difficulties.

Phaselocj the years since its pubUcation much has happened in the phaselock world. Tuning of the YIG sphere is accomplished by altering a magnetic field; magnetic devices are notoriously slow to respond.

Using the portraits of Ref. They phasellock capable of very large tuning ranges, have highly linear tuning characteristics, and provide useful output power. Noise power in the receiver is directly proportional to bandwidth. This expectation is only partly met in actual equipment.

This philosophy underlay the first edition of this book, which was well received by its intended audience.

A single spike appears for each modulation peak if the overmodulation is slight, while additional spikes appear in bursts as the overmodulation is increased. Two important characteristics of the filter are that the bandwidth can be very small and that the filter automatically tracks the signal frequency.

A highpass characteristic is obtained; that is, the loop tracks low-frequency changes but cannot track high frequencies. The lock-in limit of a first-order loop is equal to the loop gain.

I hope the profession finds this book to be as useful as its predecessor.

Perfect frequency control can be achieved by this method, whereas conventional AFC techniques necessarily entail some frequency error. If sinusoidal phase modulation tefhniques peak Nonlinear Tracking: In Chapter 9, it is seen how this restriction has impeded understanding of phaselocked FM demodulators.

He provides many numerical examples and graphical plots technique are of value to the reader. The newest edition has up-to-date topics, all based on research papers and hence is a great source garrdner information for newbies and experts in the PLL design field. Instead, I have tried to outline the underlying assumptions and methods employed in derivations and have stressed practical results.


Implementation problems in tiie loop components, namely loop filter phase detector, and VCO, phaselovk discussed in Chapter 6. If the viewpoint is correct, drop lock can, in principle, be pushed to lower signal-to-noise ratios by improvements in the loop components.

It may be advisable to shut off the slew current once lock has been verified. Why should a second-order loop behave so differently from a first-order loop? Hence, some readers may find it little boring and too technical. Correct tuning of the local oscillator is essential to synchronous recep- tion; any frequency error whatsoever will hopelessly garble the informa- techniquez. All curves of Figure 4. A positive-feedback network causes the active filter to oscillate at some low frequency while the Feedback network FIgnre 5.

As might be expected, an extended PD characteristic provides an extended pull-in range and faster pull-in time.
