Any unwanted electrical signals contaminating the signal to be measured.This noise may be electronic noise which is an artefact of semiconductor construction techniques and can be reduced. Alternatively the noise may be caused by environmental factors. This type of noise can be the result of poor positioning or screening of signal wiring. This may result in mains frequency or RF pickup contaminating the required signal.
Electrical disturbance usually caused by excessive electromagnetic interference.
the variation in the signal produced by the instrument. Noise is caused by short and long-term variations in different instrument components.
Noise is an electrical term for interference, and is due to the random thermal motion of electrons. Therefore it is based on the temperature of the surroundings. For example, a Satellite points at an Earth Station (Earth being roughly 270 Kelvin). The Earth Station points into space (blank space being roughly 80 Kelvin). Occasionally the sun is behind the Satellite and so the Earth Station sees an infinite temperature. A few times a year links suffer station-sun interference.
Unwanted signal interference - usually separated into various forms of signal cross talk and random noise generated by means internal to the sensor. Object plane The plane created by tracing ray paths backwards from the active detector elements through the focusing lens assembly, through the scanning mechanism to project the active field of focused image area in space. The object plane is an optical description of what the system can focus. Ocular The eyepiece of an optical system.
A general, informal term for any type of interference, most commonly electrical interference or myopotentials.
electronic interference to an audio or video signal caused by the inherent limitations in equipment (see Electronic noise). NTSC: (National Television Systems Committee): used to describe the 525 line TV/video system commonly used in the USA and Japan.
Perceived sounds not in the original soundtrack. Such things as hiss, crackle, pops, hum, and buzz, are typical of the types of extraneous signals described as noise. Inherent noise in the electronic processing in any sytem is measured in decibels relative to the amplitude of the original signal. Sounds perceived as noise are heard in contrast to the sound that is the object of attention. Thus, a noise signal measured at 15 deciBels below the output of Tchaikovski's 1812 Overture finale would probably not even be heard; while a slight hiss at 55 dB below the level of a soft piano passage would be annoyingly obvious. Generally, any piece of equipment which generates ambient noise of more than 90 dB below the level of a typical audio signal is noise free as far as most human perception is concerned
1) An undesired disturbance within the frequency band of interest; the summation of unwanted or disturbing energy introduced into a communications system from man-made and natural sources. 2) A disturbance that affects a signal and that may distort the information carried by the signal. 3) Random variations of one or more characteristics of any entity such as voltage, current, or data.
An unwanted signal that interferes with reception of the desired information.
Noise is defined as unwanted sound and is usually measured in dB(A).
n. 1. Any interference that affects the operation of a device. 2. Unwanted electrical signals, produced either naturally or by the circuitry, that degrade the quality or performance of a communications channel. See also distortion.
(Electrical) Describes undesirable energy that may cause false response of sensing system logic or may be falsely recognized as a received signal by a sensor amplifier. Includes EMI and RFI.
An undesirable sound.
Unwanted aberrations and distortion in an electronic signal. Some common types of electronic noise are clock coupling, color flutter, dark current, Johnson noise, among many others.
An unwanted or undesirable signal. See system noise.
Any unwanted signal, usually varying quickly, that is mixed with normal voltage entering a computer; an electrical disturbance that can degrade communications. 9.33, 9.34, 9.35, 12.18
Anything that interferes with the ability to send or receive messages.
Undesirable signals on a communication channel that can interfere with or distort data signals. Go Top
A somewhat arbitrary term that refers to any auditory disturbance that interferes with what a listener wants to hear. [Consider a student doing an impromptu tap dance during math class. To the student who wishes to hear the beat of her shoes, the teacher's voice may be noise. To the teacher, the pupil's tapping is noise
Sound energy in the workplace.
In reference to sound, an unwanted disturbance caused by spurious waves that originate from man-made or natural sources. In radar, erratic or random deflection or intensity of the indicator sweep that tends to mask small echo signals.
Undesirable communications channel signals.
1. Any undesired sound. By extension, noise is any unwanted disturbance within a useful frequency band, such as undesired electric waves in a transmission channel or device. When caused by natural electrical discharges in the atmosphere, noise may be called static. 2. An erratic, intermittent, or statistically random oscillation. 3. In electrical circuit analysis, that portion of the unwanted signal which is statistically random, as distinguished from hum, which is an unwanted signal occurring at multiples of the power-supply frequency. If ambiguity exists as to the nature of the noise, a phrase such as acoustic noise or electric noise should be used. Since the above definition are not mutually exclusive, it is usually necessary to depend on context for the distinction. See white noise.
Any interference that affects the operation of a device. In communications, noise consists of random electronic signals, produced either naturally or by the circuitry, that degrade the quality or performance of a communications channel.
The unpredictable or random difference between the observed data and the “true process.
Factors that distort communication between buyer and seller, including barriers to communication.
Electrical or electronic interference with a signal. Any undesired sound or frequency encountered in a signal system.
A random electrical signal on a communications channel that interferes with the desired signal. Noise can be generated by the source itself, or can come from an outside source.
The difference between a model and its predictions. Sometimes data is referred to as noisy when it contains errors such as many missing or incorrect values or when there are extraneous columns.
Meaningless information added to a signal, either by the recording/transmission medium or by an encoding/decoding process. Digital signals are much less susceptible to noise than analog, although compression may still add noise to either.
Any unwanted signal. May include background noise, interference, or transmissions from nodes not belonging to the network. See also SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio).
undesirable or unwanted sound which is introduced to an audio signal by other electronic equipment or excessive gain. Includes hum, hiss, and interference
Any unwanted interference with a transmitted signal. Spurious voltage fluctuations that may be present in the enviroment and cause digital circuits to malfunction.
Random, sporadic, or multi-frequency acoustical signals that is generated by the operation of equipment. Since audible noise can be distracting or annoying to the user, designs try to minimize their levels.
In common use the word noise means unwanted sound or noise pollution. In electronics noise can refer to the electronic signal corresponding to acoustic noise (in an audio system) or the electronic signal corresponding to the (visual) noise commonly seen as 'snow' on a degraded television or video image. In signal processing or computing it can be considered data without meaning; that is, data that is not being used to transmit a signal, but is simply produced as an unwanted by-product of other activities.
Acoustic noise, is any unwanted sound in the acoustic domain, including noise pollution, noise on audio systems, appliance noise, factory noise, crowd noise and so on. It is important to recognise that the term noise is also used to refer to other, non-audible forms, especially in electronics.
Noise in analog video and television is perceived as a random dot pattern that is superimposed on the picture as a result of electronic noise and radiated electromagnetic noise picked up by the receiver's antenna – it is the "snow" that is seen with poor analog television reception or on VHS tapes.
Radio noise in radio reception is the superposition of white noise (also called "static") and other disturbing influences on the signal, caused either by thermal noise and other electronic noise from receiver input circuits or by interference from radiated electromagnetic noise picked up by the receiver's antenna. If no noise was picked up with radio signals, even weak transmissions could be received at virtually any distance by making a radio receiver that was sensitive enough. In practice this doesn't work, and a point is reached where the only way to extend the range of a transmission is to increase the transmitter power.
Noise in audio, recording, and broadcast systems refers to the residual low level sound (usually hiss and hum) that is heard in quiet periods of a programme.
Electronic noise exists in any electronic circuit, as a result of random variations in current or voltage caused by the random movement of the electrons carrying the current as they are jolted around by thermal energy. The lower the temperature the lower is this thermal noise.
