Abstract : The intermodulation analysis presented in this paper is based on the important observation that any output component of a memoryless nonlinear device can be expressed as an integral of the product of two functions, one being the single carrier amplitude characteristic of the nonlinear device and the other being a function of the statistical parameters of the input signal. The analysis can also be extended to nonlinear devices with AM-PM conversion by expressing the amplitude characteristic as a complex function. It is also shown that the method is convenient for analysis of intermodulation in cascaded nonlinear elements for which the individual single carrier amplitude characteristics are known.
