Paper Abstract

This paper describes a methodology to generate behavioral and functional level PLL models. Two sets of PLL block models are derived, one on functional level as a linear PLL and one on behavioral level as a nonlinear PLL. These sets, both containing a voltage controlled oscillator, a phase detector, a frequency divider and reference oscillator, allow for example to build a digital PLL as an RF frequency synthesizer. The models include the most important effects as well as noise in the frequency domain, which influence the behavior of the total PLL. The behavioral model is not valid only for the time domain but also for the frequency domain, which is essential for the characterization of RF blocks.
