Intermodulation dis-tortion (IMD) is an important issue in the performance of all com-munication systems. Its importance is greater than ever in today’s wide bandwidth, complex-mod-ulated wireless systems, with the added factor of multiple transmitters and receivers sharing the same site, same tower, or even the same antenna. This tutorial article reviews the basics of IMD, relating them to the performance issues of modern wireless systems.
