Book Description

An in-depth look at the theory and applications of frequencystability

An understanding of the acquisition of stable frequency isessential for anyone who needs to solve noise problems in wirelesscommunications. This book offers a thorough introduction to theprinciples and applications of frequency stability, armingpracticing engineers with the tools they need to minimize noise insystems and devices that affect everyday communications formillions of people.

With an emphasis on both practical and scientific points ofview, Frequency Stability: Introduction and Applicationsexamines frequency and time fluctuations in resonators, as well asthe stability of both standard and practical microwave oscillators.It explains noise properties of building circuit blocks,introducing time domain properties and how they relate to noisespectral densities. Including a special chapter devoted to thedesign and properties of phase locked loops—a crucial topicfor frequency synthesizers—the book also:

  • Examines in detail L/F noise, showing how power losses in thepropagation material extend over a long period of time
  • Covers sapphire, optoelectronics, MW, and ring oscillators withthe discussion of noise in delay-line oscillators with lasers
  • Offers an extended treatment of phase noise in semiconductorsand amplifiers based on Van der Ziel investigations
  • Emphasizes the modified Allan variance in the time domain,including exact computations
  • Outlines the relationship between resonator frequency andoutput phase noises via the feedback theory

Featuring numerous tables with actual data, FrequencyStability: Introduction and Applications is an invaluable guidefor engineers wishing to rein in acoustic and electromagneticinterference in modern communications.
