How to add phase noise (in dBc) at a certain freq. offset - RF Cafe
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.

I have the following data
From Carrier | Phase Noise |
| 1 kHz | -84 dBc/Hz |
| 10 kHz | -100 dBc/Hz
| 100 kHz | -96 dBc/Hz |
| 1 MHz | -109
| 10 MHz | -122 dBc/Hz |
have a data of lengh L in time domain.
I use the above information on Phase noise and add
to my signal ???

you need to transform from the time
domain to the frequency spectrum domain. I think
I am right in saying that the data length L in the
time domain is not relevant.
What is relevant
is the date rate and the modulation method. Thus
a data rate of 8 megabits per second passed through
a 64QAM modulator has a certain symbol rate and
this relates to the spectrum width around the carrier
frequency center. Armed with that knowledge and
the level of the carrier, you can estimate the noise.
Draw a spectrum distribution curve from the data
you have of offset frequency and noise, and superimpose
a Gaussian curve for the signal spectrum. That will
show the relative noise and carrier levels.
At bottom, life is all
