Synopses & Reviews
A versatile and immensely useful introduction to phase-locked loops.
Phase-Lock Basics is a broad-based, hands-on text, designed to be both easy to understand and easy to customize. The text can be used as a theoretical introduction for graduate students or, when used with MATLAB simulation software, the book becomes a virtual laboratory for working professionals who want to improve their understanding of the design process and apply it to the demands of specific situations. The description of second-order phase-locked loops is very thorough, covering all practical variations with formulas, graphs, worked examples, problem sets, and MATLAB simulation exercises, and forming a basis that is extended into an understanding of more complex loops.
Other features include:
- Introduction to loop components, stability, responses, and performance in the presence of noise
- MATLAB simulation software and other design aids written explicitly to correspond with the text
- Access to an Internet site that corresponds with the text so that curves can be downloaded, duplicated, or modified
- Scores of multicurve figures that illustrate various loop responses
- Summary of acquisition formulas for second-order loops
- A four-page table of CW, AM, and FM signals in multiple representations.
Phase-Lock Basics is an important reference for professional analog and digital circuit designers. It also provides a complete and satisfying learning experience for graduate electrical engineering students.
