Slide 4 ME365 Noise & Noise Rejection Average Signal Power Average power (in Watts) dissipated when voltage signal is connected to a 1 W resistor: Assume the actual signal s ( t ) and the noise n ( t ) are independent of one another: Root Mean Square (RMS) voltage of a signal is: Ex: For x ( t ) = A sin( w t + f ), the average power of x ( t ) is: Noise Characterization x t T x t dt T 2 2 0 1 ( ) ( ) x t s t n t 2 2 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) Signal Power Noise Power  x t x t ( ) ( ) rms 2 A 2 /2
Slide 5 ME365 Noise & Noise Rejection Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR, S/N) Characterizes the “noisiness” of a particular signal, x ( t ) = s ( t ) + n ( t ): SNR is usually expressed in decibels (dB): The uncertainty of a measurement is the inverse of the SNR.

Slide 6 ME365 Noise & Noise Rejection Noise Characterization System “Noisiness” The “noisiness” of a system (device) is called the Noise Figure ( NF ). It is defined to be the ratio between the input and output SNR: It is desirable to design a measurement system (device) that has a noise figure ( NF ) close to 1. NF SNR SNR NF NF dB ( ) ( ) log ( ) INPUT OUTPUT 10 10 Measurement System (Device) Input x ( t ) Output y ( t )
ME365 Noise & Noise Rejection Random Noise – Observe “random” signal for several observation periods: Signal is different from period to period. The average power for each observation period is about the
