This chapter discusses automatic gain control (AGC) design for radio transceivers and the comparison between AGC and PLL. The following topics were covered: AGC design; AGC amplifier curve; linearizers; AGC detector; loop filter; threshold level; integrator;control theory analysis; modulation frequency distortion; comparison of the PLL and AGC using feedback analysis; techniques; basic PLL; phase detectors; loop gain constant; conversion gain constant; similarities between the AGC and the PLL; and feedback systems, oscillations, and stability.
