Hello everyone,

i have studied that for a linear system output power should follow the input power. But due to the large signals levels outputs get saturated and the point where the gain drops by 1dB is said to be 1dB compression point.

I have plotted the output power vs input power but i am not able to interpret the graphs .following are the results i m getting for different input signals levels

i/P (dBm) P1(dBin) Gain(dB)

-96 -25.863 30.91

-60 -26.47 30.9

-40 -51 30

-10 7.96 14.43

what does these values signify. Are these acceptable value.how to relate these value with linear or nonlinear system.pls suggest.....
