In almost every wireless RF application, a Phase Locked Loop (PLL) is required. Digital signal processing especially for PLLs in CMOS technology is increasingly used instead of conventional analog processing to improve reliability, to reduce power consumption, and to allow for reconfigurability. This paper presents a simulative analysis of an All Digital PLL (ADPLL) with a two bit Frequency Discriminator (FD) in the feedback path. Effects on the in-band noise performance due to the sampling rate are treated. Furthermore, a theoretical prediction and simulative analysis of spurious emission offset frequencies will be given.
