This article proposes a new architecture for a digital tanlock loop which eliminates the time-delay block. The �=2 (rad) phase shift relationship between the two channels, which is generated by the delay block in the conventional timedelay digital tanlock loop (TDTL), is preserved using two quadrature sampling signals for the loop channels. The proposed system outperformed the original TDTL architecture, when both systems were tested with frequency shift keying input signal. The new system demonstrated better linearity and acquisition speed as well as improved noise performance compared with the original TDTL architecture. Furthermore, the removal of the time-delay block enables all processing to be digitally performed, which reduces the implementation complexity. Both the original TDTL and the new architecture without the delay block were modelled and simulated using ATLAB/Simulink. Implementation issues, including complexity and relation to simulation of both architectures, are also addressed.
