Cascaded amplifier tools.
With this tool the overall system performance of cascaded amplifiers can be calculated:
- Total gain
- Noise factor
- Overall system 1dB output compression power
- 3OIP, 3rd order output power intercept point.
Using this tool you can calculate and analyse what the effect is when an LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) is put in front of the chain when a better noise performance is required. The improvement by the LNA's noise factor and gain can de seen in the yellow fields on the left hand side of the window.
