Recently I study frequency Offset estimation due to mismatch in carrier frequency from the oscillator at the receiver. I understand how this cause problem can cause a phase shift. But I also saw that this cause problem called CARRIER LEAKAGE. So I look online and I saw the following:
Certain transmitter implementations may cause leakage of the center frequency component. Such carrier Leakage can occur in some transmitter because of DC offset. This issue is seen on the receiver side as energy in the transmit center frequency
Does carrier leakage mean an increase in interference power?? I thought that carrier offset happens at receiver and not transmitter. I also saw that carrier leakage can cause increase in the Error Vector Magnitude (EVM), I can't see the relationship between carrier leakage and EVM.
Looking forward for your discussion.
