This unique new book is your single resource for all issues related to intermodulation and multi-tone distortion in microwave and wireless circuits. Beginning with an overview of the general concepts of distortion in microwave and wireless devices, it delves into the theory and practical aspects of nonlinear distortion, tools for nonlinear analysis, mathematical representations of wireless circuits and devices, and design methods for minimizing distortion. The book presents the full range of distortion specs to help ensure you select the right telecommunications equipment for your needs. Choose from the full range of design methods for highly linear circuits to optimize linearity in small-signal and high-power amplifiers and mixers. Practical advice on modeling and computer-aided tools guides you toward successful analysis and design. Moreover, the book helps you design other highly-linear circuits and systems related to microwave and wireless communications and it includes the most comprehensive treatment of the application of Volterra methods in the technical literature.
