A revised collection of groundbreaking presentations made at a recent IMS (International Microwave Symposium) workshop, this cutting-edge resource provides a comprehensive treatment of nonlinear behavioral modeling for RF and microwave circuits and systems from renowned experts in the field. Presenting state-of-the-art RF and microwave applications, this practical book gives you hands-on techniques that you can use immediately on your current projects. The book helps you create nonlinear behavioral models in the frequency and time domain, as well as in the envelope domain for wireless applications. You learn how to make large-signal microwave measurements for nonlinear model extraction and gain a thorough understanding of the use of neural networks in nonlinear behavioral model generation. Moreover, this unique reference explains the physical mechanisms responsible for dynamic nonlinear effects in microwave ICs, such as memory in power amplifiers. Other key topics discussed in detail include Volterra analysis, scattering functions, envelope models, and the application of neural networks.
