In this case, sensitivity is defined as the minimum signal level that the system can detect with acceptable SNR of the RF receiver:
The measurement was carried out with the following observations: 1) The IEEE802.11g standard provides acceptable signal till 250 m distance, but the IEEE802.11n--300 meters; 2) The data rate at closer distances from base station are about the same, but increasing the distance, the noticeable difference accurse between the standards; 3) The minimum signal level matches -100dBm; 4) The minimum signal level IEEE802.11g reaches at a shorter distance than the IEEE802.11n equipped computer; 5) The minimal improvements of IEEE802.11n show significant differences between legacy standards in outdoor measurement.
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.
In the MA2481B, the minimum signal level is -46 dBm at either of the switching points.
To determine the range at which a radar can detect a target, it is necessary to consider one more value: the sensitivity of the radar receiver, defined as the minimum signal level which the receiver can receive and still perform its specified functions (see Fig 5).
4 Amplitude ripple budget allocation and typical performance at low input signal level; the amplitude ripple budget must be considered at a maximum and minimum signal level within the dynamic range to ensure low distortion.
Moreover, calibration is as quick and easy as inputting the desired maximum and minimum signal levels and pressing a button to store the values in nonvolatile memory, the company adds.
In scalar mode, markers automatically calculate peak-to-peak ripple, N - dB bandwidth, -1 dB compression point, and find the maximum and minimum signal levels. For fault location measurements the next peak left/right feature identifies the position and magnitude of each of the discontinuities along the transmission lines, with the peak find soft key used to quickly locate the biggest discontinuity on the line.
