Power measurements
decibel: is a logarithmic unit or transmission
measurement unit used to express relative
Gains and Losses.
dB (decibel)
dBm (decibel pre mili watt)
dB (decibel per micro watt)
dBi (decibel per isotropic antenna)
dB-SPL (decibel Sound Pressure Level)

dBm = 10 log10 (
0.001W )

dB = 10 log10 (

Three stage system comprise of two
amplifiers and one filter. The input power
Pin = 0.1mW. The absolute power gains are
Ap1 = 100, Ap2 = 40, Ap3 = 0.25.
(a) the input power in dBm
(b) output power (Pout) in watts and dBm
(c) The dB gain of each of the three stages
(d) The overall gain in dB


(a) -10dBm
(b) Pout = 0.1W, 20dBm
(c) 20dB, 16dB, -6dB
(d) 30dB

Determine the Total power when a signal
with a power level of 20dBm is combine
with a second signal with a power level of


Bandwidth and Information Capacity

The bandwidth of an information signal is
simply the difference between the highest
and lowest frequencies contain in the
Information Capacity (Shanons Equation)

I = B log 2 (1 + S N )

Electrical Noise is defined as any
undesirable electrical energy that falls
within the pass band of the signal
Noise can be divided in two general
(1) correlated
(2) uncorrelated

Uncorrelated Noise
Uncorrelated noise is present regardless
of whether there is signal present or not
Uncorrelated noise can further divided in
two categories
external Noise: noise that is generated
outside the device or circuit.
Internal Noise: is a electrical interference
generated within a device or circuit.

External Noise
Atmospheric Noise: Atmospheric noise is
commonly called as a static electricity
- lightening effect
- Explosive sounds
- Friction sounds
- Extraterrestrial Noise: Extraterrestrial noise
consist of electrical signal that originates outside
earths atmosphere
- Milky way
- Other galaxies
- Sun

Man-Made Noise: Noise that is produced

by mankind
- Commutators in electric motors
- Automobile ignition system
- AC power generating and switching
- Fluorescent lights

Internal Noise
Shot Noise: shot noise is caused by
random arrival of carriers at the output of
the element of an electronic device like
diode, transistor etc..
- Shot noise is sometimes called as a
transistor noise and is additive with
thermal noise.

Transit time Noise: any modification to a

stream of carrier as they pass from input to the
output of the device produce an irregular ,
random variations categorized as a transit time
Thermal Noise : Thermal noise is associated
with the rapid and random movement of
electrons within a conductor due to thermal


Correlated Noise
Correlated noise is a form of noise that is
mutually related with signal. Correlated
noise is also known as a nonlinear
Harmonic Distortion: Harmonic distortion
produced due to non linear amplification of
the signal.
- Harmonics are integer multiples of
fundamental frequency

%THD =

V fundamental


Vhigher = V2 + V3 + Vn

(a) 2nd, 3rd, 12th harmonics for 1-KHz wave
(b) Percent second order, third order and
total harmonic distortion for fundamental
frequency with amplitude of 8 Vrms , a
second harmonic amplitude 0.2 Vrms ,
and third harmonic amplitude is 0.1 Vrms

(a) 2KHz, 3KHz, 12KHz
(b) 2.5%, 1.25%, 2.795%

Intermodulation Noise: is the generation of

unwanted sum and difference frequencies
produced when two or more signals applied to
the non linear device
Sum and difference frequencies also known as
a cross product of the signals
Cross product =

mf1 nf 2


For a non linear amplifier with two input

frequencies 3KHz, 8KHz determine
(a) First three harmonics present in the
output for each fundamental frequency
(b) Cross-product frequencies produced for
values of m and n of 1 and 2

(a) 3KHz and 8KHz, 6KHz and 16KHz,

9KHz and 24KHz
(b) 5KHz and 11KHz, 2KHz and 14KHz,
13KHz and 19KHz, 10KHz and 22KHz
(for m,n = 11,12,21,22)
