A receiver is required to pass a blocking test with a –39 dBm CW-blocker at an offset of 600 kHz
from the desired channel. The reference (desired) signal level is –99 dBm, the detection SNR is 9
dB and the channel bandwidth is 200 kHz. What is the required phase noise spectral density of the
local oscillator signal at 600 kHz offset? Approximation: Assume that the LO phase noise spectrum
is flat from 500 kHz to 700 kHz offset.

=
Reference signal level
Required S/N-ratio
Allowed disturbance level (in 200 kHz bandwidth)
Bandwidth = 200 kHz (Approximation: Flat spectrum over 200 kHz band)
Allowed disturbance level in 1 Hz bandwidth
Blocker (=carrier) level
L(600 kHz) = Allowed noise spectral density relative to carrier
or another way around:
Reference signal level
- Required S/N-ratio
= Allowed disturbance level (in 200 kHz bandwidth)
- Blocker level
= Disturbance level relative to blocker level
= Allowed oscillator noise relative to carrier (in 200 kHz bandwidth)
- Bandwidth = 200 kHz (Approximation: Flat spectrum over 200 kHz band)
= L(600 kHz) = Allowed noise spectral density relative to carrier

A single loop PLL has an offset in the loop filter corresponding to a phase offset, Δθ, of 0.01 rad
(0.57Ε). The loop parameters are:
N = 1000
Loop division ratio.
fref = 100 kHz Reference frequency (at phase detector).
Loop natural frequency.
fn = 1 kHz
ϕ = 53o
Loop phase margin.
a. Calculate the relative level of the spurious signal at 1st and 2nd harmonic of the reference frequency.
Use (the reformulated) results from “Brennan” for a 3rd order loop with a phase-frequency detector
for relative levels of the sidebands at ω0 &plusmn; nωref :
