RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Phase noise text recommendation - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including 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.
