Abstract : Whenever multiple signals are present in a wideband RF system, any amplitude nonlinearity in the transfer characteristic of the system can generate inband intermodulation interference and degrade performance. The magnitude of the intermodulation interference depends upon both the characteristics of the system nonlinearities and the power level of the received signals. The expected manifestations of this self-generated interference depend upon the structure of the signal that is to be received. In this report, emphasis is directed toward the effect of intermodulation interference on PCM/FM error rates.
