Clock Duty Cycle Tuning for Desense Mitigation in Modulation‑Involved Cases
By Shengxuan Xia, Jun Fan, and Chulsoon Hwang
This paper provides a comprehensive study on how to mitigate desense with the change in the spectrum distribution by tuning the duty cycle of the interfering clock. Measurements conducted on a real cellphone showed a 10 dB suppression of desense for certain TX bandwidth condition.
