Noise Modeling

Noise sources, phase noise, thermal noise, noise figure specification

Use noise sources to simulate white or colored noise in RF models and calculate the noise power. To calculate thermal noise, use S-Parameters block.

Examples and How To

Model System Noise Figure

RF receivers amplify signals and shift them to lower frequencies.

Model LO Phase Noise

A mixer transfers local oscillator (LO) phase noise directly to its output.

Designing a Receiver with an ADC

Most RF receivers in modern communications or radar systems feed signals to an analog-to-digital converter (ADC).

RF Noise Modeling

This example shows how to use the RF Blockset™ Circuit Envelope library to simulate noise and calculate noise power.

Impact of an RF Receiver on Communication System Performance

This example shows how to use the RF Blockset™ Circuit Envelope library to measure the effect of thermal noise on the bit error rate (BER) of a communications system and to verify the result by comparing to a Communications System Toolbox™ reference model.
