While we are on the subject of the 74HC4046, I would like to point out a
confusing error in the TI datasheet for this part, found at

The waveform diagram for Phase Comparator 3, Fig. 7 on p. 5, has inverted
waveforms for PC3out and VCOin. PC3out should rise at the leading edge of
SIGin and fall at the leading edge of COMPin. The corresponding diagram in
the NXP/Phillips datasheet, Fig. 11, is correct.
