Intermodulation distortion generated in a m.e.s.f.e.t. amplifier is analysed using a Volterra series representation. The transistor model used enables direct analytical determination of the nonlinear elements from small signal measurements. Experimental verification comparing predicted and measured second-and third-order intermodulation products in the amplifer is presented.
