A frequency synthesizer employing a new digitalfrequency measurement method in a feedback loop is described. The synthesizer features high-frequency resolution and a high operating frequency. The mostly digital nature of the synthesizer and relaxed voltage-controlled oscillator requirements also make the synthesizer suitable for integration. Models for the synthesizer are developed and experimental results from a prototype are given. Index Terms-Frequency-locked loops, frequency synthesizer, phase-locked loops, phase noise.
