PLL locking problem

    My PLL can not lock. I am using an Xor gate as the PD. And the VCO is
    cross coupled VCO. Now the control voltage is in the tuning voltage
    range of VCO, but it is an oscillation the same frequency as the
    output of the PD. It should be a DC voltage when the PLL is locked.
    What can be the problem? Thanks!

    And your loop filter is what?

    disconnect the Vtune line and connect a power supply to the vco. then monitor
    the loop filter output on a scope and see if the voltage switches at the tune

    Sounds like you missed out the low pass filter between PD and VCO.

    I am using a RC low pass filter, which is followed by a source follower.

    And where is your *zero*?
