The influence of switch devices’ response time on signal distortion in power amplifiers of radio transmitters

Information and Signal Processing

The paper gives an overview of method for computing distortion originating due to key devices’ inertance while generating signal in radio transmitters. A connection between devices’ time response and envelope and carrier distortions has been established on the basis of the mathematical model of radio signal. The method can be used for distortions assessment of radio transmitters being applied in data communications, navigation or broadcasting systems.
