 Yiming Guest -2 slope from white phase noise Oct 15th, 2003, 7:06pm   Ken,This question might be dumb but I am somewhat confused. In the matlab script of your jitter modeling paper, you integrate the jitter using function cumsum() before you use psd() to obtain the power spectral density of phase noise. What is the theory behind the integration?Assume the output voltage of the oscillator is x(t) = A*cos[wc*t + theta(t)] = A*cos(wc*t) - theta(t)*A*sin(wc*t), then the RMS power = A^2/2 + A^2/2 *, where = integral(Sphi(f), -inf, inf), and Sphi(f) is the phase noise PSD. Sphi(f) again equals to the Fourier transform of the auto-correlation function of phase noise . If the phase noise is white, it would results in Sphi(f) is white, too.

Matlab reads this file in and then applies the cumsum function to compute the time at which each transition occurs. This is proportional to the phase of the VCO. The PSD function is then applied to compute the phase noise as a function of frequency.-Ken Back to top IP Logged Pages: 1
