    Phase Noise Simulations of Frequency Multipliers Using Jitter/Timedomain Noise Reply

    Hello All,

    I have simulated the phase noise of frequency dividers in the past numerous times using the method defined in Chapter 6 of "Predicting the Phase Noise and Jitter of PLL-Based Frequency Synthesizers" by Ken Kundert.

    I believe that I could use the same method to run the phase noise on a frequency multiplier, but I'm having trouble finding a reference.  Do you have experience running phase noise simulations on frequency multipliers, or know of a reference?  Am I running the multiplier phase noise correctly?

    I'm basically following the directions as described in the frequency divider chapter (Chapter 6) with a couple changes.  I'm doubling a 100MHz input to a 200MHz output.  The beat frequency is 100MHz, and I'm doing a relative sweeptype in pnoise and looking at the noise at the 2nd harmonic.  Other than that, I believe the method is the same.  I define a zero crossing in pnoise and look at the noise there.  From there, I calculate the phase noise from the output frequency, the slew rate at the zero crossing, and the zero-crossing noise.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Dave

    Yes, this should work (rather belated reply).

    Andrew.
