PLL Phase Noise Software

January 17, 2011

The widely popular PLL Phase Noise Calculator tool on Hittiteā€™s website was specifically designed to help synthesizer designers select the best Hittite Divider, Phase Frequency Detector and VCO for their PLL circuit needs. The interrelation of these building blocks is critical to achieving optimal PLL phase noise, and each component in the PLL circuit will impact overall performance.

A graphical interface guides the user through the component selection process, and the calculator uploads the key performance attributes for each Hittite component selected. The PLL Phase Noise Calculator quickly provides the phase noise contribution of each PLL element, as well as the total for the entire loop.
