This second edition of Phaselock Techniques is -- as was the first -- the standard reference on the subject. Greatly expanded and largely rewritten to reflect a better understanding of the subject, the book presents much new material, some published here for the first time. Explanation of fundamentals is improved and expanded, and description of applications is greatly increased.
The first portion of the book is a well-organized review of the fundamentals of phaselock, as well as a discussion of the underlying problems faced by designers. Most of this mateiral has been rewritten from the first edition. The material that follows deals with practical aspects of component circuits and with rational procedures for deciding upon phaselock loop parameters.
The remaining chapters provide engineering descriptions and analyses of applications of phaselock. Most of this material is unique.Included are discussions of phaselocked modulators and demodulators, sythesizers, receivers, transponders, oscillator stabilizers, and data synchronizers.
