Synthesis and simulation of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th order systems using passive loop filters.

pll_synth_4th_order(ipump, vco_sensitivity, fout, fcomp, bandwidth, pm)

function [cap res] = pll_synth_4th_order(ipump, vco_sensitivity, fout, fcomp, bandwidth, pm)
% Synthesizes PLL loop components for a 4th order system using the
% topology shown below.
%
% Input  ipump is the charge pump current in Amperes
%  vco_sensitivity is the VCO sensitivity in Hertz/Volt
%  fout is the output frequency in Hertz
%  fcomp is the comparison frequency in Hertz
%  bandwidth is the open loop bandwidth in Hertz
%  pm is the phase margin in degrees
% Output  cap is the capacitors of the loop in Farads [C1, C2, C3, C4]
%  res is the resistors of the loop in Ohms [ R2, R3, R4]
%
% The method used here is derived from that presented in Dean Banerjee's
% Book "PLL Performance, Simulation, and Design" 4th Ed available at
% National Semiconductors site www.national.com. Most of the work is
% derived from Chapter 23 pp.186197.
%
% No closed form solution exists for 4th
% order systems, therefore some simplification of the model has been made
% to derive the results. Due to the simplifications the results will
% also not always be 100% accurate. It is recommended that the
% results are verified using the pll_simulation.m script, which does not
% use a simplified model.

%% Design Parameters
% The following values will give sensible results but not necessarily
% optimal
T31 = 0.4; % T3/T1 ratio of time constants
T43 = 0.4; % T4/T1/T31 ratio of time constants
gamma = 1.0; % optimization factor p172 and pp220227 of Banerjee
% Conversion of parameters to more convenient units
Kpd = ipump/2/pi; % phase detector gain
Kvco = vco_sensitivity*2*pi; % vco gain
omega = 2*pi* bandwidth; % open loop bandwidth in radians/sec
%% Synthesis
%% Find T1 using numerical methods
t1 = (sec(pm*pi/180)tan(pm*pi/180))/(omega*(1+T31)); % approximate value for T1
% T1 is the root of this equation
num1 = @(t) atan(gamma./(omega.*t*(1+T31)))atan(omega.*t)atan(omega.*t*T31) atan(omega*t*T31*T43 )  pm*pi/180;
T1 = fzero(num1, t1); % find root numerically
