Design Notes

System Equivalent Noise Temperature

This example shows the use of two new VSS RF budget (RFB) measurements as well as the new RX_ANTENNA block.

The new RFB measurements used in this project are System Equivalent Noise Temperature (Tsys) and Gain to System Temperature Ratio (G/T).

Note, the source impedance (ZS) of the TONE block is set to 377ohms, and its temperature is set to 0K.

The physical temperature for noise due to resistive loss parameter (T_PHY) of the antenna is set to _TAMB (which is 290K), and the output temperature of the antenna (T_ANT) is set to 35K. The above mentioned parameters are secondary parameters. The GAIN of the antenna is set to 50dB.

Please read the on-line help for the RX_ATENNA block along with the on-line help for the above mentioned measurements.
