    Capture range, ±ωL, is the range of frequencies were if the frequency of the reference signal, Sr, get into it, the PLL will try to acquire lock in at most one period of the natural frequency, Wn.

    hi,
    there are 3 main terms to describe a pll's working range as i know, they are
    1.Lock-in range (seize range)
    frequency range below which the loop can acquire lock without cycle slip;
    2.Capture range (pull-in range)
    frequency range below which the loop can acquire lock ( after some cycle slips);
    3.Hold-in range
    frequency range in which the loop can remain lock.(some loop components failed).
    ofcourse, different terms also exist.
    tell me if i'm wrong.
    thanks.
    jeff
