Further Testing and Newer Methods in Evaluating Amplifiers for Induced Phase and Frequency Modulation via Tones, Amplitude Modulated Signals, and Pulsed Waveforms
This paper will present further investigations from AES Convention Paper 8194 that studied induced FM distortions in audio amplifiers. Amplitude modulated (AM) signals are used for investigating frequency shifts of the AM carrier signal with different modulation frequencies. A square-wave and sine-wave TIM test signal is used to evaluate FM distortions at the fundamental frequency and harmonics of the square-wave. Newer amplifiers are tested for FM distortion with a large level low frequency signal inducing FM distortion on a small level high frequency signal. In particular, amplifiers with low and higher open loop bandwidths are tested for differential phase and FM distortion as the frequency of the large level signal is increased from 1 KHz to 2 KHz.
