IP3 or Third Order Intercept point
The IP3 is the intercept point of extrapolated, inter-modulated and distorted third
harmonic components. It is plotted as Output power vs. Input power.
As shown in the diagram above, the higher the value of IP3 point, the lower is the
value of intermodulation product of incoming signals.
