Hi All!

For the Analog devices OP amps the IMD is measured by ITU-R method, according MT-053 tutorial (, but often in the other OP amps IMD is measured according SMPTE method, when use 60Hz and 7kHz signals combined in a 12 dB ratio. How can I recalculate IMD SMPTE to IMD ITU-R?


And for the AD8007/8008 according the datasheet IMD is 77dBc

( fC = 19.5 MHz to 20.5 MHz, RL = 1 kΩ, VO = 2 V p-p

Third-Order Intercept is 42.5),

but if I calculate in compliance with the MT-053 tutorial:

Why is the difference so big?

Thank You.
