The Effect of Bit Transmission Rate to the Receiver Sensitivity and BER Performance


Mohammad Syuhaimi Ab-Rahman, Kasmiran Jumari


Vol. 8  No. 12  pp. 87-90


Thermal Noise is generated naturally by thermal agitation of electron in a conductor commonly found in opto-electronic device. In spite of the optical medium is totally immune to noises but it is not exception to occur in receiver parts. In communication, thermal noises have major influenced to the quality of receiver. It is directly proportional to the resistance and temperature. The lower the thermal noise the higher and expensive is this receiver sensitivity. This paper highlights the discussion of transmission rate that influence to BER performance improvement by increasing the receiver sensitivity. At same thermal noise value, decreasing the system transmission rate will increase the receiver sensitivity.
