Relating phase noise & jitter of clock signal

  1. Jun 28, 2012 #1
    I am trying to calculate the phase noise of a clock signal given its jitter. I have used the equation given in Hajmiri's book - The Design of Low Noise Oscillators. I have attached a snapshot of my hand calculations.

    As shown in the calculations, the calculated phase noise is -67 dBc/Hz whereas the lecture slides report it to be -55 dBc/Hz.

    Link to Lecture slide:


    Chapter 13, slide 12

    Could you please comment on the difference ?
