This text can be used as a theoretical introduction for the electricalengineering graduate student; when used with MATLAB, the book becomesa virtual laboratory for the professional analog and digital circuit designer.Features include an introduction to loop components, stability, responses,and performance in the presence of noise; scores of multicurve figuresthat illustrate various loop responses; summary of acquisition formulasfor second-order loops; and a four-page table of CW, AM, and FM signalsin multiple representations. In addition, second-order phase-locked loopsare described thoroughly, covering all practical variations with formulas,graphs, worked examples, problems sets, and MATLAB exercises, forminga basis that is extended into an understanding of more complex loops.
