*Note: Enter values in INPUT boxes and Press CALCULATE button to check OUTPUTS.

EXAMPLE:
INPUTS: Bandwidth = 10000 Hz , Noise Figure = 15.1 dB
OUTPUT: MDS = -118.9 dBm

Minimum Detectable Signal Equation

We know that sensitivity of the RF receiver is the minimum signal strength that can be detected and the transmitted signal can be reproduced. MDS is the another term to represent the same thing. Following equation or formula is used for MDS(Minimum Detectable Signal) calculator.
