From Component SNR to System SFR


A methodology that enables the projection of system performance from component characteristics is presented in this study. Equalized signal-to-noise ratio (eSNR), which refers to the SNR seen by the sequence detector, is a metric that can link component parametrics to Viterbi BER. Orthogonal breakdown of eSNR into contributions from head noise, transition… (More)
