An integral measure of the phase noise power in phase locked loops
Abstract
An integral measure of the difference between the actual value and the minimum value of the phase noise power spectral density of the PLL (phase locked loop) output signal has been defined. The measure is linked with the power of the output signal phase noise. The effect of secondorder PLL parameters on the value of this measure at fixed noise power spectral densities of reference signal and VCO generators is determined.
