In applications such as phase array antenna where the phases of multiple synthesizers must be aligned, it would be beneficial if each synthesizer can phase-align its output and input without complex and time-precision circuitry. The LMX2820 is one of the RF synthesizers in TI's product portfolio that can support phase synchronization.

In this user's guide, we will explain the theory of phase synchronization, the limitations of phase synchronization, and demonstrate how to set up synchronization in a step-by-step guide.
