RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Convert C/I3 to IP3 - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Have got some date but do not have the formula to convert C/I3 to IP3. I have the LNA gain(dB), input power level (dBm) and C/I3 (dBc). Could some one help me with the conversion? Thanks.

I have never heard of a C/I3 equivalent of IP3, but there is a ratio of the carrier power to 3rd-order intermod product power.

http://www.maurymw.com/support/pdfs/5C-043.pdf

The IM3 power is governed by the standard equation:

P(IM3) = 3*P(input tones) - 2*IP3

That works for input or output reference.

So, knowing your carrier level, and the IM3 tone levels, simply subtract dB levels to get the ratio.
