Phase noise text recommendation - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a decent text book on phase noise.
I am after a text that starts at the beginning and caters for the newbe. I wish to obtain a good understanding of phase noise and eventually be able to model phase noise within my PLL design.

Thankyou

Hi Darcy,

Not a textbook, but a good application note which includes the derivation of Leeson's formula and other basics of phase noise.

Hope this helps!

Darcy -

Almost any PLL book (Gardner - Phaselock Techniques, Egan - Frequency Synthesis by Phase Lock) will have a section on Phase Noise in a PLL context.

My favorite reference for phase noise in general is "Phase Noise in Signal Sources" by W. P. Robins. Be sure to get the later editions (1984 or the 1998 reprint) as there were some errors in the first (hardcover 1982) edition. It's pretty expensive, so you might try borrowing from a library first.
