Properly Understanding Noise In Test Applications
The output of a noise generator is usually assumed to follow a true Gaussian distribution but, even when not truly Gaussian, noise can make an excellent signal for communications tests.
Evaluating Noise Sources By Gaussian Distribution
A typical Gaussian distribution is generally plotted with the number of sigma, or standard deviations, shown on the horizontal (X) axis (see figure, left). When measuring the performance of a noise generator, a critical factor in assessing its ...
