The obtaining of most important statistical characteristics (such as distribution density of probabilities of phase-error, out-of-lock probability, variance of phase-error, out-of-lock mean time, mean time of transient process) of digital phase-lock loops problem using Markov chains is considered., Digital PLL proposed by Holmes , has been examined in this paper. The results of analytical solutions and computational modeling are being compared.
Keywords: synchronization, Markov chains, digital phase-locked loops.
