Spectral density concept : S(f) measures how power of a random noise or signal is distributed in frequency. Thermal noise has a constant spectral density over all frequencies used in communication.

Maximum data rate of a channel Crudely, if we send the ideal 2W (2H in text) samples/second and can distinguish V = 2 levels, we could send k 2 2Hk = 2H*log V bits per second. This leaves unanswered how many levels V we can distinguish. This is mainly limited by random noise fluctuations. Shannon developed an equation for the maximum data rate, as a function of: noise signal received power bandwidth.

Assume pure thermal noise. 0 The noise power in a band of H herz is N H. S is the signal power. 0 S/N = S/N H is called the signal-to-noise power ratio.

    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.
