  • English
  • If sufficient demand
  • Phase locked loops have many applications and are important in wireless communication systems. The course will therefore provide knowledge in theory and design of phase locked loops.
  • Introduction to phase locked loops and frequency synthesis, basic phase locked loops, undesired signals and noise, frequency dividers, phase detectors, loop filters, architectures, aquisition aids, all digital phase locked loops, phase locked loops with controllable output phase
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • understand how a phase locked loop works and can be used, and what parts give different limitations in achievable performance.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to choose a suitable architecture for a phase locked loop and its parts to achieve a given performance with low cost and power consumption. Be able to simulate a basic phase locked loop in a CAD-environment for integrated circuits.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to benefit from reading scienfic papers on phase locked loop techniques.
Types of Instruction
  • Seminars
  • Project
  • It is mandatory to participate in at least 80% of the seminars, and that each particiant is contributing to at least one seminar. A simulation project with report is also required.
Examination Formats
  • Written report
  • Seminars given by participants
  • Failed, pass
Admission Requirements
  • Analog IC design (ETIN25) or equivalent
Assumed Prior Knowledge
Selection Criteria
  • Egan, William F.: Frequency Synthesis by Phase Lock, Second Edition. Wiley, 2000. ISBN 0471321044.
  • The book Phase-Lock Basics by the same author is a good complement
