A brief explanation of each parameter is given in Table 1. All cell input data is validated for correctness.
 Figure 3 System Specification Input Areas  "Inband"  Parameter  Description  Range  Tolerance  Units  P[input]  Signal power level at system input  1000 to +1000    dBm  Temp  System reference temperature – used for noise power calculations. (273.15 is absolute zero)  273.14 to +1000    °C  Min SNR  Minimum system SNR used to calculate the dynamic range (SDR)  100 to +100    dB  Use VSWR  Determines whether the interface VSWR mismatch errors are included in the cascaded Gain equation, which in turn affects every other equation in the system.  “y” or “Y” to include “n” or “N” to exclude     
 Table 1 System Input Parameters  "Inband"   Figure 4 System Specification Input Areas  "FilterMixer"  Parameter  Description  Range  Tolerance  Units  Frequency Units  Used in noise power calculations and for filter/mixer calculations. This value is used throughout the workbook for column headers and calculations.  “g” or “G” = GHz “m” or “M” = MHz “k” or “K” = kHz      Input Frequency  Defines input frequency range for filter and mixer calculations. Low: Lower input frequency High: Upper input frequency # Steps: Number of frequency steps between Low and High limits. !Important! If this number is changed, then the number of both the "Freq" columns and the "Psig" columns must be changed to match.  10^{9} to < High Low< to 10^{12 }
