What Do Clocks, Carriers, Local Oscillators, and FM Have in Common? (.PDF Download)

The master timing control circuit for most electronic applications is a precision signal source. For digital applications, it’s an accurate clock. In RF applications, it’s a carrier source for a transmitter or a local oscillator (LO) for a receiver. And if frequency modulation (FM) is involved, a modulator and demodulator are needed along with a carrier source.
