Abstract

Large-signal (LS) periodic or quasi-periodic device operation is customarily defined as the operation regime characterized by electrical signals made of a superposition of harmonic components, often named tones as well. Such signals are large enough to require a complete, time-varying device analysis, meaning that the basic assumption of small-signal operation, i.e. that the time-dependent signals are a linear perturbation of the DC operating point, is no longer valid.
