Abstract

High dynamic range of the HF SSB receiver is one ofits important design goals. High dynamic range can be achieved by using RF elements that have high IP3, high 1 dB compression point and low noise figure. RF amplifiers are such elements, and increas- ing their IP3 or their 1 dB compression point gener- ally increases their noise figure. Therefore, high dynamic range amplifiers are not trivial and special schemes are adopted for high dynamic range RF amplifiers.
