-Behavioral Modeling of Nonlinear RF and Microwave Devices
A unique approach is used to model non linear behavior of devices, amplifiers, sub systems, and systems. Full use of spreadsheet computation of additive equations involving newly defined right hand and left hand functions provides insight into non linear behavior. Relationships are developed between amplifier saturated power output, 1 dB compression point, third order intercept point, and a newly defined compression coefficient. This new approach reveals why third order intermodulation products don't always increase 3 dB per 1 dB increase in power input when running the classical two tone test. Have you ever been perplexed with a shortfall in saturated power output from a cascaded string of power amplifier stages when standard CAD software predicted full expected power output? Behavioral models using the newly defined compression coefficient reveal the reason. Cascaded amplifier stage equations are formulated from which three dimensional trade spaces can be developed that lead to optimum power output and optimum power added efficiency.
