Frequency synthesis for telecommunications systems and for modulation and waveform generation is discussed in the 491-page Integrated Circuit Design for High-Speed Frequency Synthesis. The resource offers hands-on experience in the discipline, covering laboratory techniques, procedures and applications. It provides circuit implementation guidance for synthesizer designs, focusing on phase-locked-loop-based analog and direct digital synthesizers and their applications in CMOS and BiCMOS technologies. Advances in phase noise reduction techniques, injection locking and quadrature oscillators are detailed. Part of the Artech House Microwave Library series, the volume includes charts, diagrams, references, an index, and worked and simulated examples.
