Some Aspects of Nonlinear Circuits KVL & KCL Still Apply – Nonlinear Element Constraints Coupled with Network Constraints Require More Complex Solution Methods • Sometimes Piecewise Linear Approaches Work Sometimes Piecewise Linear Approaches Work – Notion of Small Signal Model: Linearization Around an Operating Point (to be discussed in transistor material) Possibilities for Multiple Valued Solutions (multiple stable or metastable solutions / non- t i I V l ti hi ) monotonic I-V relationships) Negative Feedback Can Improve Linearity • Harmonic Generation & Frequency Mixing 2 Harmonic Generation & Frequency Mixing
