Abstract

This paper presents an analytical large signal intermodulation distortion (IMD) analysis which allows the origins of IMD in power amplifiers (PAs) to be understood; and the behavior in different classes of operation to be predicted versus input power. Two tone measurements on a 950 MHz RF CMOS PA in different classes of operation are used to illustrate typical behavior and demonstrate application of the method presented.
