The Designer's Guide to Low Jitter Oscillators emphasizes jitter for time domain applications so that there is not a need to translate from frequency domain. This provides a more direct path to the results for designing in an application area where performance is specified in the time domain. The book includes classification of oscillator types and an exhaustive guide to existing research literature which allows designers to find appropriate publications for more detailed design guidance. It also includes classification of measurement techniques to help designers understand how the eventual performance of circuit design is verified. This book contains a CD-ROM with MATLAB examples of design optimization, system level behavioral simulation, and intuitive presentation of probability background.

The Designer's Guide to Low Jitter Oscillators is a companion to The Designera (TM)s Guide to High Purity Oscillators by Hegazi, Rael, and Abidi. This book is for practicing designers with BS or MS degrees and researchers working in fields where noise requirements are specified in the time domain.
