Demystifying the IP3 specification

Keywords:IP3  radio frequency  RF  analog ICs  graphics 

IP3 is a well-known parameter that gauges linearity in radio frequency (RF) functions and components. This tutorial will use basic math and graphics to explain how IP3 is generated and how its values are linked to essential quantities, such as the input and output powers of a device. It will explain why high IP3 (thus, high linearity) is so important when evaluating high performance. Finally, it will discuss some high-performance analog ICs in which linearity, high IP3, is a fundamental measurement of their good operation.
