Presents and validates a discrete-time/frequency-domain approach to the problem of Volterra-series-based behavioral modeling for high-frequency systems. The proposed technique is based on the acquisition of samples of the input/output data, both of which are sampled at the Nyquist rate corresponding to the input signal. The method is capable of identifying the time-/frequency-domain Volterra kernels/transfer functions of arbitrary causal time-invariant weakly nonlinear circuits and systems operating at high frequencies subject to essentially a general random or multitone excitation. The validity and efficiency of the proposed modeling approach has been demonstrated by several examples in high-frequency applications and good agreement has been obtained between results calculated using the proposed model and results measured or simulated with commercial simulation tools.
