Enter the overall noise figure (dB) and the noise floor (dB) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Receiver Sensitivity.

- SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) Calculator
- Antenna Noise Temperature Calculator
- TWA (Noise Exposure) Calculator

## Receiver Sensitivity Formula

RS = OSF + NF

Variables:

- RS is the Receiver Sensitivity (dB)
- OSF is the overall noise figure (dB)
- NF is the noise floor (dB)

To calculate Receiver Sensitivity, add the overall noise figure to the noise floor.

## How to Calculate Receiver Sensitivity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Receiver Sensitivity.

- First, determine the overall noise figure (dB).
- Next, determine the noise floor (dB).
- Next, gather the formula from above = RS = OSF + NF.
- Finally, calculate the Receiver Sensitivity.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

overall noise figure (dB) = 100

noise floor (dB) = 200
