A New Method of Phase Splitting in PLL Frequency Synthesis

A new method of frequency synthesis achieves excellent spectral purity, high agility, fine resolution, low power consumption and cost. The principle of the Phase Digital Synthesizer (PDS) is the control signal for the VCO in the PLL is formed by a Multi Frequency-Phase Detector (MFPD) with phase splitting of the reference and VCO signals into a large group of compared signals. The outputs of the partial detectors are then summed to develop the VCO control voltage.

Tactical Targeting Network Technology

What It is and What You Need to Know

If data protection is critical to home users in terms of warding off things like identity theft and fraud, think of how critical it is when you're talking about data being transmitted from an aircraft traveling in excess of one thousand miles per hour to command crews on the ground. When something as essential as national security is on the line, you cannot leave anything to chance in terms of reliability and security - which are exactly the types of concerns that Tactical Targeting Network Technology were designed to address.
