Definitions for "Cross Modulation"
A form of interference caused by the modulation of one carrier affecting that of [email protected] signal. It can becaused by overloading an amplifier as well as by Signal imbalances at the headened.
A form of distortion in which modulation from one or more carriers' signals is imposed on another carrier's signal.
Interference caused by the modulation of one carrier affecting another signal. It is usually due to nonlinear device operation, which can be caused by overloading an amplifier, and is worsened by signal power level imbalances (e.g. at the receiver input in the head-end of a cable distribution network).
