The central question of this paper is: can we enhance the spectral purity of nonlinear circuits with the help of polyphase multipath circuits. Polyphase multipath circuits are circuits with two or more paths that exploit phase differences between the paths to cancel unwanted signals. It turns out that it is very well possible to cancel distortion products produced by a nonlinear circuit. Unfortunately, there are also some spectral components that cannot be cancelled with the polyphase multipath circuits. In this paper tables are presented that can easily be used to predict which spectral components are cancelled and which are not cancelled for a certain polyphase multipath circuit.
