Abstract : The theoretical analyses are developed which are necessary to provide an understanding of the nonlinear behavior and spurious responses of several solid-state components and devices. These include masers, parametric amplifiers, transistors, tunnel diodes, and ferrite devices. The extent of interference effects in particular circuit applications are estimated. The effects are desensitization, cross modulation, intermodulation, spurious responses, gain stability, and gain recovery time. These effects are treated taking into account the inherent device characteristics, impedance matching, selectivity, automatic gain control, automatic frequency control, and temperature variation. Experimental data show the degree of agreement with predictions of the interference effects. In the absence of predictable interference effects, the data obtained provide empirically derived bases for predictions. This document is composed of two volumes; Volume II is AD 285 224. (Author)
