Properties of Signals & Noise
 In communication systems, the received waveform is
usually categorized into two parts:

Signal: Noise:
The desired part containing the The undesired part

Physically Realizable Waveforms
 Physically realizable waveforms are practical
waveforms which can be measured in a laboratory.

 These waveforms satisfy the following conditions

• The waveform has significant nonzero values over a

composite time interval that is finite.
• The spectrum of the waveform has significant values over a
composite frequency interval that is finite
• The waveform is a continuous function of time
• The waveform has a finite peak value
• The waveform has only real values. That is, at any time, it
cannot have a complex value a+jb, where b is nonzero.

Physically Realizable Waveforms
 Mathematical models that violate some or all of the conditions
listed above are often used
 One main reason is to simplify the mathematical analysis.
 If we are careful with the mathematical model, the correct
result can be obtained when the answer is properly interpreted.

Time Average Operator

Definition: The time average operator is given by,

The operator is a linear operator,

• the average of the sum of two quantities is the same as
the sum of their averages:

Eeng360 5
Periodic Waveforms
 Definition
A waveform w(t) is periodic with period T0 if,
w(t) = w(t + T0) for all t
where T0 is the smallest positive number
 A sinusoidal waveform of frequency f0 = 1/T0 Hz is periodic

 Theorem: If the waveform involved is periodic, the time average

operator can be reduced to

where T0 is the period of the waveform and a is an arbitrary real constant, which
may be taken as zero.

Eeng360 6
DC Value
Definition: The DC (direct “current”) value of a
waveform w(t) is given by its time average, ‹w(t)›. Thus,

 For a physical waveform, we are actually interested in evaluating

the DC value only over a finite interval of interest, say, from t1 to t2,
so that the dc value is

Eeng360 7
If we use a mathematical model with a steady-state
waveform of infinite extent, then the formula with T  
can be used

 Definition.
Let v(t) denote the voltage across the input of a circuit, and
let i(t) denote the current into the terminal, as shown
the instantaneous power (incremental work divided by
incremental time) associated with the circuit is given by:
p(t) = v(t)i(t)
the instantaneous power flows into the circuit when p(t) is
positive and flows out of the circuit when p(t) is negative.
 The average power is:

Normalized Power
 In the concept of Normalized Power, R is assumed to be 1Ω,
although it may be another value in the actual circuit.
 Another way of expressing this concept is to say that the
power is given on a per-ohm basis.
 It can also be realized that the square root of the normalized
power is the rms value.

Definition. The average normalized power is given as follows,

where w(t) is a voltage or current waveform

Energy and Power Waveforms

Eeng360 18
Energy and Power Waveforms
 a waveform can be either an enery or a power signal and not

 If w(t) has finite energy, the power averaged over infinite time
is zero.

 If the power (averaged over infinite time) is finite, the energy

if infinite.

 However, mathematical functions can be found that have both

infinite energy and infinite power and, consequently, cannot be
classified into either of these two categories. (w(t) = e-t).

 Physically realizable waveforms are of the energy type.

– We can find a finite power for these!!

 A base 10 logarithmic measure of power ratios.
 The ratio of the power level at the output of a circuit
compared with that at the input is often specified by
the decibel gain instead of the actual ratio.
 Decibel measure can be defined in 3 ways
• Decibel Gain
• Decibel signal-to-noise ratio
• Decibel with milli-watt reference or dBm
 Definition: Decibel Gain of a circuit is:

Decibel Signal-to-noise Ratio (SNR)
 Definition. The decibel signal-to-noise ratio (S/R, SNR) is:

Where, Signal Power (S) =

And, Noise Power (N) =

So, definition is equivalent to

Eeng360 23
Decibel with Mili watt Reference (dBm)

 Definition. The decibel power level with respect to 1 mW is:

= 30 + 10 log (Actual Power Level (watts))

• Here the “m” in the dBm denotes a milliwatt reference.
• When a 1-W reference level is used, the decibel level is
denoted dBW;
• when a 1-kW reference level is used, the decibel level is
denoted dBk.
E.g.: If an antenna receives a signal power of 0.3W, what is the
received power level in dBm?
dBm = 30 + 10xlog(0.3) = 30 + 10x(-0.523)3 = 24.77 dBm

 Definition: A complex number c is said to be a “phasor” if it is
used to represent a sinusoidal waveform. That is,

where the phasor c = |c|ejc and Re{.} denotes the real part of the complex
quantity {.}.
 The phasor can be written as: c  x  jy  c e j  c 
