Nonlinear Circuit Analysis via Perturbation Methods and Hardware Prototyping

Figure 4

Magnitude-frequency response of source follower. Analytical prediction is in bold, and experimental data is plotted as “x”s and “o”s. The fundamental harmonic is a low-pass filtered version of the input. The second harmonic has a bandpass shape, as predicted by perturbation analysis.
