    This paper describes a method for mutual phase noise and spurious tones analysis of integer-N phase locked loop (PLL). With this method both contributions of individual phase noise sources and effects of parameter dimensioning, oy the spectral purity, can easily be recognized. Furthermore, a transistor-level analysis example is given to clarify and to illustrat. The spectral purity optimization.
