I have a question on clking scheme in a SoC. Say there is a pll in SoC. So clk supplied to all the modules from pll. Now pll needs to be locked before it gives accurate clk freq and expected duty cycle. This means that we should not suppy the unstable clk(i.e. clk before pll lock is (...)

What does it really mean when someone says that the pll lock range is 47 Hz - 63 Hz? I was thinking that this should be related to the reference freq. which is usually in KHz-MHz range. But as this is in Hz so I am very confused. Does it mean that the reference freq. will be between 47 Hz - 63 Hz and my pll should lock (...)

The capture range is determined by the difference between the free-running frequency of the VCO, the input frequency and the bandwith of the loop filter. Simply said this difference has to become small enough so that it can fall within the BW of the low-pass loop filter. That is, you sweep the input frequency from let's say 0Hz toward the free run

Generally, parameters in the time domain help determine the lock time. For example, in GSM/EDGE, the system is TDMA, so the handset switched back and forth between transmit and receive. The timing on that determines the pll lock time. In a CDMA system, the handset is full duplex, so the lock time is determined by base (...)

One one would be running transient simulation, measuring time jitter and transferring it into phase noise.
You may also try to run PSS with tstab longer than pll lock time and run PNOISE.

There may be many reasons of this problem.If you supply reference signal and oscillator signal properly, check the programmation and pll lock filter.
Feedback may be not properly provided by oscillator or programmation can be wrong..etc.
If chrage pump is closed to Vdd, input frequency may be very low than expected or programmation is not loaded

I'm not aware of any oscilloscope, that has built-in a similar analysis function. You should consider, that it would be only reasonable for those signals, that have a clear, dominant frequency. Many signals presented to an oscilloscope don't have it.
It's however possible to generate a similar frequency plot by signal processing of aquired data.

Seems the answer may relate to how much jitter you can tolerate when creating the 4MHz clock.
The problem is that you would be providing a relatively infrequent "correction" into the pll, and the pll's oscillator can drift in between these events, due to e.g. external P/S noise or other internal pll effects.
And if you are (...)

Usually the data signal is coded to insure transitions and avoid long sequences of 0s or 1s.
Also a scrambler at TX, descrambler at RX is used to randomize the transmitted data.
The transmission is continous if the data link is synchronous - even if no data is to be transmitted a dopping seq is transmitted.

VCOs are very sensitive to control voltage. So you need to filter it as much as you can. Supply voltage has to be filterd also, and a shield for the board can be necessary.
A good way to measure it is lock with a pll with a very small loop bandwidth. For freqs larger then the loop bandwidth you'll see the VCO phase noise.
