The Phase-locked loop (PLL) is used in GPS receivers to track an incoming signal and to provide accurate carrier phase measurements. However, the PLL tracking performance and measurement accuracy are affected by a number of factors, such as signal-to-noise power ratio, Doppler frequency shift, the GPS receiver's jitter caused by vibration, and the Allan deviation. Among these factors, the thermal noise and Doppler shift are the most predominant and have a large influence on the design of the… Expand
