The Saw Tooth Error problem in GPS Receivers

The Saw Tooth Error problem in GPS Receivers

The 1PPS output from a GPS receiver often comes with a "sawtooth error." Eliminating or reducing the sawtooth error is critical, especially in precision timing applications. See how it can be addressed with this Application Note

How we use our NPLLs to support time synchronization

How we use our NPLLs to support time synchronization

A NPLL (Numerical Phase-Locked Loop) is a numerical/digital implementation of the traditional phase-locked loop, which is a feedback control system that aims to synchronize the phase of an oscillator with the phase of a reference signal.
