Abstract:

A theoretical and experimental investigation of circuit techniques was conducted to provide circuits with minimum interference susceptibility for receiver application. The circuits considered are solid-state circuits for predetection functions in receivers, operating in the frequency range from 1 MHz to 10 GHz, and include bipolar transistor amplifiers, field-effect transistor amplifiers, parametric amplifiers, tunnel-diode amplifiers, crystal-diode mixers, and varactor-tuned filters. Investigations were also conducted to determine the nonlinearities and RFI characteristics of microelectronic receiver circuits and the Hall-effect mixer. Measured and predicted results of intermodulation, harmonic distortion, and cross-modulation are shown graphically for the circuits investigated. Techniques to minimize interference susceptibility and performance tradeoffs are discussed and are illustrated by developed circuits and measured data. Author
