Gauging IMD/PIM in Microwave Components (.PDF Download)

Intermodulation distortion (IMD) indicates the nonlinear behavior of different RF/microwave devices and components. IMD occurs when two or more signals occupy the same transmission path and the signals mix, creating additional signals. The added signals can disrupt a system’s performance, for example, by limiting the sensitivity of a high-frequency receiver. IMD can take place in active components, such as amplifiers, as well as in passive components like cables and connectors...
