Carrier-to-receiver noise density


Carrier-to-receiver noise density

Carrier-to-receiver noise density ( "C" /k "T" ): In satellite communications, the ratio of the received carrier power to the receiver noise power density.

"Note 1:" The carrier-to-receiver noise density ratio is usually expressed in dB.

"Note 2:" The carrier-to-receiver noise density is given by

:frac{C}{k T} ,

where "C" is the received carrier power in watts, k is Boltzmann's constant in joules per kelvin, and "T" is the receiver system noise temperature in kelvins.

"Note 3:" The receiver noise power density, k"T", is the receiver noise power per hertz.
