A nonlinearity with memory can be modelled by a two-box-model, which consists of a filter and a memoryless nonlinearity. I am referring to chapter 5.3.2 of the book "Simulation of Communication Systems" by M.C.Jeruchim et. al. here's a link to Google books
I am given the AM-AM- and the AM-PM-characteristic of an amplifier. I want to model the behavior of the amplifier to a two-tone input signal. To do so, I want to set up a two-box-model. The memoryless nonlinearity should be described by the given characteristics.
- But what does a filter before the memoryless nonlinearity do?
- What does an ARMA filter do?
- Can an ARMA filter be used to filter an analog signal (sine-waves) ?
