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...

How to add phase noise (in dBc) at a certain freq. offset - 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.

Hi,

I have the following data

| Offset From Carrier | Phase Noise |

-------------------------------------------------------

| 1 kHz | -84 dBc/Hz |

| 10 kHz | -100 dBc/Hz |

| 100 kHz | -96 dBc/Hz |

| 1 MHz | -109 dBc/Hz |

| 10 MHz | -122 dBc/Hz |

I have a data of lengh L in time domain.

How do I use the above information on Phase noise and add to my signal ???

Thanks

Shilpika

Hi shilpika

you need to transform from the time domain to the frequency spectrum domain. I think I am right in saying that the data length L in the time domain is not relevant.

What is relevant is the date rate and the modulation method. Thus a data rate of 8 megabits per second passed through a 64QAM modulator has a certain symbol rate and this relates to the spectrum width around the carrier frequency center. Armed with that knowledge and the level of the carrier, you can estimate the noise. Draw a spectrum distribution curve from the data you have of offset frequency and noise, and superimpose a Gaussian curve for the signal spectrum. That will show the relative noise and carrier levels.
