Passive Intermodulation (PIM)

PIM is a form of intermodulation distortion that occurs in components normally thought of as linear, such as cables, connectors and antennas. PIM shows up as a set of unwanted signals created by the mixing of two or more strong RF signals in a nonlinear device, such as a loose or corroded connector, or nearby rust. Other names for PIM include the diode effect and the rusty bolt effect.
