This combined text and reference is a one-stop source for everything students and professionals need to know about designing digital frequency synthesizers from RF/wireless applications to millimeter-wave frequencies. If features the first complete analysis of systems affected by phase-lock loops (PLL) and evaluates the effect of developing components in the loop. Microwave and Wireless Synthesizers focuses on practical and reliable circuits that can be used as a starting tool and limits the discussion to the necessary formulas. At the same time, its thorough mathematical presentation for applications makes it a must for anyone involved in the development of signal generators, radio communication equipment, or test equipment.
