Amplitude Characteristic

 

the dependence of the amplitude of a signal at the output of an apparatus or instrument on the amplitude of the signal at its input. According to the shape of the amplitude characteristic, it is possible to estimate the linearity of a system (electrical, mechanical, and other apparatus), its nonlinear distortion (in case of deviation of the amplitude characteristic from a straight line), the effectiveness of a receiver’s automatic gain control, and so on.

The amplitude characteristic [U.sub.dyn] (A) for quasistationary sinusoidal vibration A = [A.sub.o] sin ([omega]t) can be obtained by multiplying U by [beta] = 1/(2 x D) of resonance surpass of forced vibration.
From the amplitude L([omega]) and phase [phi]([omega]) characteristics presented in this diagram, it is seen that the system is stable, since the amplitude characteristic crosses the abscissa axis before the phase characteristic, finally decaying, goes over the value of the angle -180[degrees].

However, if the output power is measured at the fundamental frequency, the amplitude characteristic shows that the output level increases beyond 27 dBm to saturate at 2.1 dB above this level, as shown in Figure 5.

Based on the accumulated statistics of the amplitude measurements, you can compare the measurement values to the data sheets of the clock driver and the components being driven by the clock signal to verify that amplitude characteristics are within specifications.
