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....Continua
