How to Use the Spectrum Analyzer and a Noise Source to Measure Noise Figure

Noise figure is an important parameter in many RF applications. Per its definition, Noise Figure (NF) is a measurement of the degradation of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) which is caused by components in a signal path. It is a number by which the performance of an amplifier or a radio receiver can be specified. The lower the values, the … Continue reading How to Use the Spectrum Analyzer and a Noise Source to Measure Noise Figure
