Overview:
This month we begin a two-part series on
frequency synthesis, with an introduction to Phased Locked Loops. This webcast looks at
the need for frequency generation, the techniques from the past present and
future, and how to assess the performance of a frequency synthesis, and real
world applications. Particular attention will be focused on Phase Locked Loops
(PLL’s) as frequency synthesizers.

Who should attend?
Students and engineers new to the
field of RF and instrumentation design, as well as those more experienced
engineers looking for a refresher on this topic.
