where S is a maximum signal level
at the output of a TIA and it can be calculated as follows
13, the maximum signal levels
of the B-PMA and the B-PSA appear alternately; the maximum signal level
of the B-PSA is detected near the minimum signal level of the B-PMA, and the maximum signal level
of the B-PMA is detected near the minimum signal level of the B-PSA.
Each standard defines minimum performance characteristics for receivers, and includes specifications such as bandwidth, maximum signal level
, and sensitivity.
I do not recall the maximum signal level
(all ones) was used for the tests but I assume it was at least movie theater level loud.
The signal, a signal mask relative to the maximum PSD, and the absolute maximum signal level
limit are displayed.
Here, E is a continuous signal near the maximum signal level
at yielding and H is the preamplifier noise, while G is a burst emission signal for comparison.
