Analog Devices will host a webinar about the fundamentals of clocks synthesis and distribution. The online seminar will discuss the types of phase-locked loops, the key features of these devices, and the applications they are designed for. The ADI webcast will take place tomorrow (January 18, 2012) at 12:00 pm EST. The webinar is ideal for students and engineers who are new to the field, and also for more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on this or any other part of the signal chain, design, and layout.
