Fractional-N synthesizers are highly desirable in communication systems because of their high frequency resolution output. This resolution is made possible by dithering the divide value using the output of a sigma-delta modulator. A typical sigma-delta fractional-N frequency synthesizer is shown in Figure 1 . The tri-state phase frequency detector...
