delay distortion

delay distortion

[di′lā di′stȯr‚shən]
(electronics)
Phase distortion in which the rate of change of phase shift with frequency of a circuit or system is not constant over the frequency range required for transmission. Also called envelope delay distortion.

The model development of residual BER focuses primarily on the source's phase noise and the power amplifier AM/PM distortion, These key components usually represent the greater part of the residual error budget and are often responsible for the vast majority of the cost of the radio, There are other secondary contributors to the error floor, including group delay distortion or inter symbol interference (ISI).
In most cases group delay distortion is not a significant factor largely because of the tremendous power of modern digital equalizers.
The Japan ADSL splitter has a POTS impedance of 600 ohms with voice band delay distortion of 250 microseconds.
The series include low-pass, high-pass, band-reject and bandpass filters, and can also be used as delay lines, with desirable control of group delay distortion.
Group delay distortion also may be introduced into the FFA system because the varactors resonate to change their phase.
A non-linear phase response will cause group delay distortion, introducing data-dependent jitter or intersymbol interference into the data stream.
The problem with this approach is the introduction of group delay distortion.
The effect of group delay distortion on a quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) digital transceiver is considered.
Also incorporated into the design are multisection group delay equalizers that minimize the effects of group delay distortion.
The IF filter for both systems is required to have 200 kHz of band-width, low insertion loss and low group delay distortion.
This test translator is said to deliver reliable translations with a minimum of amplitude and delay distortions.
The digital adaptive equalizers can compensate for any type of linear distortions in the channel including magnitude and group delay distortions in the cable, impedance mismatches in terminations and reflections from unterminated stubs and cable splices.
