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.

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

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

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.
