Fundamentals of Frequency Synthesis, Part 1: Phased Locked Loops

The first of a two-part series on frequency synthesis, with an introduction to Phased Locked Loops. This webcast looks at the need for frequency generation, the techniques from the past present and future, and how to assess the performance of a frequency synthesis, and real world applications. Particular attention will be focused on Phase Locked Loops (PLL's) as frequency synthesizers.
