    Frequency quantization in first-order digital phase-locked loops with frequency-modulated input
    Frequency granularity in a digital phase-locked loop arises from quantization in the number-controlled oscillator which prevents the loop from locking exactly onto its reference signal and introduces unwanted phase jitter. Based on a nonlinear analysis of trajectories in the phase space, we have recently investigated the effect of frequency quantization in a first-order loop with a frequency-modulated input signal and have derived useful bounds on the steady-state phase jitter excursion. In this paper, we continue that work and derive the maximum modulation amplitude such that loop cycle slipping is avoided. We also examine in detail the loop behavior in acquiring phase-lock.

    Limit cycles in a digitally controlled buck converter
    We describe the mathematical model of a digitally controlled buck converter. This model is an autonomous discrete-time discontinuous piecewise-linear dynamical system in three dimensions. Investigating this system, we find its equilibrium points, describe the shape and size of possible limit cycles (i.e. stable periodic motions), and derive conditions for their existence and non-existence.

    Phase jitter dynamics of first-order digital phase-locked loops with frequency-modulated input
    Inherent to digital phase-locked loops is frequency quantization in the number-controlled oscillator which prevents the loop from locking exactly onto its reference signal and introduces unwanted phase jitter. This paper investigates the effect of frequency quantization in a first-order loop with a frequency-modulated input signal. Using tools of nonlinear dynamics, we show that, depending on the modulation amplitude, trajectories in the phase space eventually fall into either an invariant region or a trapping region, the boundaries of which give useful bounds on the steady-state phase jitter excursion. We also derive a sufficient condition for the maximum modulation amplitude to prevent loop cycle slipping.
