An accumulator stores a signal representation of an accumulated angle that is incremented by an input angle in response to a reference clock pulse. The most significant bit (MSB) of the accumulated angle signals drives the input of a phase locked loop of the type that includes a loop filter, a frequency divider and a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). A charge is injected into the loop filter during an overshoot interval during which the output of the frequency divider differs from the MSB. A compensating charge is injected into the loop filter to compensate for the charge injected during the overshoot interval. Jitter free spectrum spread clock pulses are provided by the VCO in response to the MSB.
