About this Webinar

Introducing the TI PLLatinum Sim Design/Simulation Tool highlighting TI newest RF PLL, the LMX2592!



The selection, design, and simulation of a PLL synthesis can be an involved task.  TI’s newest member to our RF PLL family, the LMX2592 will be used to demonstrate  the PLLatinum Sim offline design and simulation too.  This tool greatly simplifies this process by design tool provides the ability to quickly select devices, design loop filters, and do simulations of phase noise, spurs, and lock time. 



PLLatinim Sim allows users to do detailed simulations without forcing the user to provide a lot of information.   In the simple mode, the tool does not burden the user with providing much information by choosing smart default values and hiding these choices from the user. These default values are dynamic and automatically change with VCO frequency, charge pump gain, and other parameters.  If the user elects to show all details, then they can see and change more parameters and take full control of their simulation. Regardless of the mode chosen, the simulations are detailed and complete.   For instance, phase noise includes the modeling of the delta sigma modulator noise for fractional PLLs, impact of charge pump current on PLL noise, and allows one to load in the noise profile of the input source.  Spur modeling includes fractional spurs and accounts for many factors.   Lock time includes VCO digital calibration and allows one to also view the phase response.



In this webinar, we will explore the aspects of PLLatinum Sim using device selection, loop filter design, phase noise, spurs, lock time, and more.
