spurious response

(electronics)
Response of a radio receiver to a frequency different from that to which the receiver is tuned.
In electronic warfare, the undesirable signal images in the intercept receiver resulting from the mixing of the intercepted signal with harmonics of the local oscillators in the receiver.

Huang, 2007) have designed the triple EBG structures for a band stop filter, but there was a spurious response and passband ripple in their performances.
The unique design of the piezoelectric seismic system ensures that the units have no discernible spurious response to mounting torque, body strains, cable vibration, cable whip, pressure variations, and most heat transients.
The CC1101's main improvements over the CC1100 include improved spurious response, better close-in phase noise, higher input saturation, improved output power ramping and extended frequency bands.
Keeping the spurious response of a radio receiver down to a minimum is a major problem, particularly in the presence of strong signals to which the receiver is not tuned.
It also offers very good spectral purity, low spurious response, and significant resistance to shock and vibration.
Other resonator solutions that can achieve higher frequencies, such as AT overtone-based oscillators, exhibit undesirable characteristics such as unwanted oscillations caused by contamination, spurious response, and poor shock resistance.
CDMA receiver tests include sensitivity and dynamic range, sensitivity at full rate, single tone desensitization, intermodulation spurious response attenuation, and intermodulation test (with steady or varying Rx levels).

From the very beginning, said Davis, the US had been a reluctant actor in the Syrian conflict, driven to spurious responses only by developments on the ground.
By extending Mentor's best-in-class mixed-signal simulation to RF designs, ADVance RFIC delivers the ability to perform detailed analysis of amplifiers, filters, mixers and oscillators, including noise, stability analysis, blocking interference, port-to-port isolation and spurious responses.
This new synthesis technique determines spurious responses and their amplitudes from traditional spurious analysis parameters.
Its direct conversion architecture allows digital filtering for excellent interference rejection and fewer spurious responses resulting in superior RF performance.
