EE 164 Problem Set 11 Spring 2005 Problem 1: The optic power reaching the receiver is 1 W µ . The detector’s responsivity is 0.5 A W , and its dark current is 4 nA . The temperature is 27 C D , the receiver’s bandwidth is 500 MHz, and the load resistance is 50 . a) Compute the signal-to-noise ratio. b) Compute the thermal-noise-limited SNR. c) Compute the shot-noise-limited SNR. d) What value of photodetector gain is required to make the actually SNR just 5dB less than the quantum limit? Assume that the photodetector has negligible excess noise. Problem 2: Consider a heterodyne receiver for a digital system. The photodetector has 2 nA of dark current and 0.5 A/W of responsivity. The temperature is 27 C D , the load resistance is 100 , the IF bandwidth is 500 MHz, and the received optic signal power is constant at 5 nW when a binary 1 is received. a) How much local-oscillator power is required to make the SNR just 1 dB less than the quantum limit?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
