Random noise in resistors and transistors Mixer noise Undesired cross-coupling noise Power supply noise Dynamic range capability of detecting weak signals in presence of large-amplitude signals Noise (contd.) noisiness of the signal measure = signal-tonoise ratio (frequency dependant) S ( f ) average signal power SNR N ( f ) average noise power

Random noise External Atmospheric Interstellar Receiver internal

Thermal Flicker noise (low frequency) Shot noise Sky Noise Noise factor IEEE Standards: The noise factor, at a specified input frequency, is defined as the ratio of (1) the total noise power per unit bandwidth available at the output port when noise temperature of the input termination is standard (290 K) to (2) that portion of (1) engendered at the input frequency by the input termination.
