Notes/Equations
  1. AmpSingleCarrier is based on FDD (frequency-domain defined device). The incident power level at the amplifier input is detected and the corresponding gain is obtained by interpolating the gain compression table given by GainCompFile. In harmonic balance simulation, the output signal has only one frequency component given by the Freq parameter. Neither harmonics nor intermodulation products are generated by AmpSingleCarrier. In Envelope simulation, the output signal contains only the complex envelope around one frequency given by the Freq parameter.
  2. Z1 and Z2, the reference impedance parameters for ports 1 and 2, are used in conjunction with the parameters S11/S21/S12/S22. This is because S-data is always used with respect to a particular reference impedance.
