In this paper a method to extract the conversion matrix of a nonlinear circuit by commercial CAD simulators is proposed. As an example, the conversion matrix, computed from a harmonic balance simulation, is used to control the stability of oscillators under large-signal conditions. This allows the suppression of possible spurious frequencies or the intentional generation of spurious signals (e.g. at sub-harmonic frequency).

Abstract

In this paper a method to extract the conversion matrix of a nonlinear circuit by commercial CAD simulators is proposed. As an example, the conversion matrix, computed from a harmonic balance simulation, is used to control the stability of oscillators under large-signal conditions. This allows the suppression of possible spurious frequencies or the intentional generation of spurious signals (e.g. at sub-harmonic frequency).
