A hybrid analog-digital phase error detector (107) is utilized for detecting a phase error between first and second clock signals (132, 104). Digital and analog phase error detectors (108, 116) are connected to the first and second clock signals (132, 104), and are utilized for producing digital and analog phase error values (110, 118). The digital and analog controllers (112, 120) connected to the digital and analog phase error detectors (108, 116) execute digital and analog control algorithms based on the digital and analog phase error values (110, 118) to produce digital and analog control signals (114, 122). A summer (124) connected to the outputs of the digital and analog controllers (112, 120) combines the analog control signal (122) and the digital control signal (114) to produce a composite control signal (126) representing the phase error.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
