A few comments/corrections on this article. 1. In this article, starting with the discussion of the charge pump fr no longer refers to the reference frequency out of the VCO/divider but to the input frequency (that was previously called fi. The VCO/divider frequency is called fv. 2. Eq 3.5 n is an element of odd integers 3. Eq 3.6 should be fo=1/2nTd 4. Eq 3.14 should state that {U=1, D=1} is not a PDState Thanks for the otherwise great article.

Thanks for the refresher, it gave me some ideas on how to solve some signal processing issues I have been thinking about. Well done.

I have learn/read this PLL theory and work on its circuitary 30 years ago, but of course it utilised transistors and semoconductors device rather than chips in todays technology.
