Distortion Immunity of MLS-Derived Impulse Response Measurements

Document Thumbnail

Maximum-length-sequences (MLS) measurement of system impulse responses offers a potential enhancement in error immunity over periodic impulse testing, although care must be exercised in setting the MLS excitation amplitude in orderto realize this potential. The effects of nonlinearity in MLS measurement are studied, in particular the way in which impulse response errors due to nonlinearity are distributed across the measurement period. The consequences of such errors in cumulative spectral display plots are also investigated. Finally inverse-repeat sequences (IRS) are shown to have complete immunity to even-order nonlinearity while maintaining many of the advantages of MLS.
