<p><it>Editor's note:</it></p><p>Despite their inherent self-healing nature, noise (jitter) in phase-locked loops is sensitive to process and environmental variation. This article discusses automatic frequency calibration and amplitude control techniques that rely on a negative feedback loop with a large emphasis on digitally assisted calibration.</p><p align="right"><it>—Rahul Rao, IBM</it></p>
