Thermal Noise Power & Voltage

Thermal Noise Power

Noise power is based on the thermal noise power at the input of the system, along with system gain and noise figure:

Thermal noise power equation (W) - RF Cafe, where Noise power equation formula constants - RF Cafe

 

Thermal noise power (dBW) - RF Cafe

 

Multiply by 1000 to obtain milliwatts and then convert to dBm units:

 

Thermal noise power equation (dBm) - RF Cafe 

or, factoring out the 1000:

Thermal noise power (dBm) equation - RF Cafe 

 

Now that we have the thermal noise at the input, add the system gain and the additional noise added by the system (the NF) to get the noise power at the output:

Total system noise equation- RF Cafe 


Thermal Noise Voltage

Thermal noise voltage equation - RF Cafe

Thermal Noise Voltage as a Function of Resistance and Bandwidth - RF Cafe
