Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: Convert C/I3 to IP3

Have got some date but do not have the formula to convert C/I3 to IP3. I have the LNA gain(dB), input power level (dBm) and C/I3 (dBc). Could some one help me with the conversion? Thanks.

I have never heard of a C/I3 equivalent of IP3, but there is a ratio of the carrier power to 3rd-order intermod product power.
The IM3 power is governed by the standard equation:
P(IM3) = 3*P(input tones) - 2*IP3
That works for input or output reference.
So, knowing your carrier level, and the IM3 tone levels, simply subtract dB levels to get the ratio.
