hi all,
if the input rms noise of an amplifier is AVrms, the bandwidth is BHz, and the input-referred noise is CV/rtHz. Assuming the noise is flat.
1. What's the relation between A and C? does C equal A/rtB?
2. How to convert A (or C) to decibal? is NF=10log(1+C/4kTRs) or NF=10log(1+C/kTRs)? which one is correct?
thanks in advance.

Think total noise power. Noise power will be evenly spread across bandwidth, assuming noise is flat.

Think noise temperature. Convert noise temp to NF if you want expressed in NF.
