LUNSFORD II, PHILIP J. The Frequency Domain Behavioral Modeling and Simulation of Nonlinear Analog Circuits and Systems. (Under the direction of Michael B. Steer.) A new technique for the frequency-domain behavioral modeling and simulation of nonautonomous nonlinear analog subsystems is presented. This technique extracts values of the Volterra nonlinear transfer functions and stores these values in binary files. Using these files, the modeled substem can be simulated for an arbitrary periodic input expressed as a finite sum of sines and cosines. Furthermore, the extraction can be based on any circuit simulator that is capable of steady state simulation. Thus a large system can be divided into smaller subsystems, each of which is characterized by circuit level simulations or lab measurements. The total system can then be simulated using the subsystem characterization stored as tables in binary files.

A vectorial nonlinear-network analyzer (VNNA) is absolutely calibrated in amplitude and phase for narrowband measurements of nonlinearities. Calibration is performed with a reference generator, characterized with a calibrated sampling oscilloscope. The reference signal, consisting of an upconverted baseband signal, is optimized for statistically efficient measurements. Using the calibrated VNNA, narrowband amplifiers can be measured, enabling compensation of intermodulation and cross-modulation. I. INTRODUCTION In this paper the vectorial nonlinear-network analyzer concept [1] is extended for measuring narrowband devices. This is very important for testing and designing narrowband communication systems. Several mathematical tools exist for describing and analysing these components [2]. However, the measurements of their parameters is a difficult problem. We used a VNNA, already available for broadband measurements at a fixed equidistant grid. This approach can be extended f...
