Explaining Phase Noise

This webcast explores phase noise, as it relates to radio frequency applications, and mixed signal applications. Also discussed will be the different sources of phase noise, and how to achieve the lowest jitter using a Phase Locked Loop (PLL) circuit.

Ian Collins graduated from University College Cork with a degree in electrical and electronic engineering and has worked in the RF and Microwave Group of Analog Devices since 2000. He is currently applications manager of the Microwave Frequency Generation Group, which focuses mainly on phase-locked loop (PLL) and voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) products. When not spending time at work or with his young family, Ian enjoys photography and the theater (both on- and off-stage), reading, and listening to music.
