Several years ago I received a query from someone who had searched the web for information on software phase-locked loops and found my resume, which referenced my MSEE thesis. At the time I didn’t have access to the source files (on 5.25″ disk, Microsoft Word 2.0 format), so I wasn’t able to help them out. Since then I’ve found the sources and brought them into a modern format. On the off chance that someone is searching the web and would find this useful, here’s a PDF which has been lightly edited for brevity. The title, however, retains its grandiose verbosity.
“THE AUTOMATED SOFTWARE PHASE-LOCKED LOOP AND THE EXPLORATION OF AN ADAPTIVE ALGORITHM FOR THE ADJUSTMENT OF PLL PARAMETERS”
Written in 1993-1994 at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
