 Question on Sampled PAC (Read 886 times)
 iVenky Senior Member Offline Posts: 101 Silicon Valley Question on Sampled PAC Dec 24th, 2019, 4:20pm   Hi,I am wondering what the sampled PAC does exactly. Let's say I have an LPTV system H(jw,t)=ΣHk(jw) ejkwst where ws = 2Π/Ts where 'Ts' is the periodicity of the system & 'k' is an integer from -∞ to -∞. Here Hk(jw) are the harmonic transfer functions. Let's say we have an input x(t)=ejwint to the system H(jw,t) and whose output is y(t) which has the frequency translated input x(t) scaled by the harmonic transfer functions.What does the sampled PAC at a time 't0' actually measure? I can understand PAC voltage gain, which looks at the gain frequency translated output magnitude to input magnitude. On the other hand, what does sampled PAC voltage gain do?Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays Back to top « Last Edit: Dec 25th, 2019, 11:18am by iVenky »     IP Logged

For an explanation of ideal sampling, you can take a look at Ken's paper https://designers-guide.org/analysis/sc-filters.pdf. When he wrote it, the sampled PAC and PXF analyses had not yet been implemented in SpectreRF, so he used an ideal sample-and-hold written in Verilog-A.
