  1. Noise figure

    Noise figure and noise factor are measures of degradation of the signal-to-noise ratio, caused by components in a radio frequency signal chain. It is a number by which the performance of a radio receiver can be specified. The noise factor is defined as the ratio of the output noise power of a device to the portion thereof attributable to thermal noise in the input termination at standard noise temperature T0. The noise factor is thus the ratio of actual output noise to that which would remain if the device itself did not introduce noise, or the ratio of input SNR to output SNR. The noise figure is simply the noise factor expressed in decibels.
