Noise figure often characterizes a receiver and how well it can detect weak signal sin the presence of self-generated noise. The process of reducing noise figure begins with a solid understanding of the uncertainties in your components, subsystems, and test setups. Keysight Technologies offers ten tips for minimizing the uncertainties in noise figure measurements.
