Or in Matlab.. Simulation is easy for this one...
I was looking for a paper that looked at it analytically.. I figure it's
such a straightforward thing that someone back in the 60s or 70s slogged
through the stuff and did it. I found some papers from the late 70s
where they look at 2 or more tones in AWGN through a hard limiter.
I figure that Bessel functions enter into it somewhere (because when you
talk limiters, you're talking PM or FM, and Bessel functions always show
And I'm lazy enough to not do the derivation myself and throw myself on
on the kindness of strangers. (hmmm are timenuts strangers? they're
strange, that's to be sure...)
