A new approach to distinguishing electronic circuits using nonlinear/harmonic radar is presented in this paper. The radar transmits a single tone signal to the electronic circuits, consisting of nonlinear components, and exploits received harmonic response for separation. Unlike previous studies, the transmitted signal power is swept within a determined range so that the received powers at each harmonic are analyzed to capture the nonlinear characteristics. To predict the behavior of the nonlinear circuits such as diode clamper, diode limiter and full wave rectifier, certain statistical features of the received powers are analyzed. We show that the received power at the harmonics are distinctive for each circuit using Euclidean distances of features in feature space.
