Noise analysis of non-autonomous radio frequency circuits
The output noise of a nonlinear non-autonomous circuit, driven by a periodic input signal with phase noise, is stationary-not cyclostationary (as would be predicted by traditional analyses), and it is shown that effect of the input signal phase noise is to act as additional white noise source.
