  • PLL de microondas con tiempo de adquisición reducido 

    Berenguer Sau, Jordi; Artal, E.; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo (1986)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The behaviour of a PLL where the VCO is injection-locked to the reference frequency is studied. It is experimentally shown that the phase acquisition time can be reduced relative to the non-injection locked VCO situation. ...
