re: Charge-Pump Phase-Locked Loop--A Tutorial--Part I
Rich McDowell   7/11/2011 6:11:18 PM
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.

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.

Good aritcle, it refresh me a lot of fundamental stuff.


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
