Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

CD-ROM enables you to design entire PLL systems THE UNDISPUTED LEADING REFERENCE IN PLL DESIGN – UPDATED, EXPANDED, AND MORE VALUABLE THAN EVER!

NEW TO THIS EDITION * CD-ROM containing: --User-friendly PLL software enabling users to design entire PLL systems --Stability analysis --Bode diagrams * Completely new collection of sample communications applications * New chapters on PLL frequency synthesizers and computer-aided design of PLLS

Best is still the best! Here is the new fifth edition of the hands-down leader in phase-locked loop design books and perhaps the most-used PLL reference on circuit designers' desks around the world.

Considered required reading for electronic circuit designers and technicians as well as anyone else interested in creating and applying the components that lock in frequencies used for an ever-expanding list of applications, Phase Locked Loops, Fifth Edition, helps you to: * Design PLL systems up to level 5 * Understand both theory and application for all types of PLL design * Solve problems in communications, frequency synthesis, motor speed control, and much more * Create sophisticated designs in amateur radio, citizen's band, and satellite communications * Learn from more than 100 illustrations * Test your design with simulation software

Written by a world-renowned authority with experience enough to know the questions you would ask, Phase Locked Loops remains the yardstick by which all other circuit references are measured.

Format: Hardcover
This is a well written book and is the perfect source if you need to understand and design a PLL. If you are designing an analog PLL, Digital PLL or software PLL this book has what you need. The CD rom that comes with the book provides a quick and easy way to get started, design the PLL and simulate its operation. Many authors tend fill their books with formulas and obscure references and convey very little understanding. Authors that possess both an understanding of a subject and an ability to communicate well can make the subject both easy and enjoyable to learn. Best is such and author. I would recommend this book to anyone who either wants to learn about PLLs for the first time or enhance his understanding.

Even though the title says professional engineering, the presentation is at the Howard W. Sams hobbyist book level. There is nothing wrong with this, but be aware that this is a hobby book and not a university level text book.
Having said that, this book is very good for people who are more interested in getting results with simple PLL ICs and not in understanding what they are doing. It gives step by step procedures and has CAD programs that do all of the thinking for the operator.

This book is a good PLL primer. There is no complex mathematics that makes you dizzy. In addition, you can truly gain much insight from the attached PLL software developed by the author. You can see how PLL parameter affects the performance with step-by-step practice at the end of every chapter. As an engineer who wants to understand PLL, this book is a good choice.

Format: Hardcover
I had to write a software simulation of a PLL, and I didn't know much at all about PLLs. Someone recommended this book to me. From it I learned what I needed, and successfully simulated a PLL in Mathcad to prove that I'd understood the design formulae, and then implemented it in software.
I really appreciated that the important stuff was in the text, unlike some books that leave the interesting cases to be solved by the reader.
