Second-harmonic control is implemented in a balanced common-emitter configuration to facilitate frequency-independent third-order intermodulation distortion cancellation. Moreover, this circuit configuration facilitates a simultaneous match for either power and linearity or noise and linearity. Experiments demonstrated an improvement of over 15 dB in the output third-order intercept point while maintaining freedom in the choice of load and source impedance.
