What does "Frequency Synthesized" mean?

FAQ #866 Updated July 30, 2007

Question:

I was wondering if "frequency synthesized" in the UHF systems means that they are PCM encoded?

Answer:

"Frequency synthesized" means the operating frequency is not controlled by a crystal, but synthesized by an electronic circuit, typically a Phased Locked Loop (PLL) circuit. It has no relationship to PCM encoding.
