Simplified Analysis of Phase-Locked Loop Capture and Tracking Range (AN 1200-7) 
The Keysight 53310A's ability to measure and display a signal's continuous frequency over time makes dynamic frequency analysis of PLLs easy. A direct measure of the PLL's capture and tracking range is obtained by monitoring the output frequency while the PLL is forced to go in and out of lock. A...
