Implementation Margin Of A Satellite Communication System
Application Note | By Stephen Shaw, Noisecom

The implementation margin of a satellite communication system is defined as the degradation of the signal after travelling through the up and downlink equipment. To find this, an Eb/No generator can carry out an IF loopback test of the modem to find bit error rate (BER) values at different Eb/No ratios.
