A GRAPHICAL REVIEW OF NOISE-INSTABILITY CHARACTERIZATION IN ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS

Juan José González de la Rosa, Isidro Lloret Galiana, Carlos García Puntonet, Víctor Pallarés López

Abstract

A thorough study of the noise processes characterization is made with simulated data by means of our non-classical estimators. Individual and hybrid noise sequences, previously generated by seed functions, have been used to obtain a set of characterization graphs identifying the noise type by mean of the enveloping curve. It is also shown the case of a hidden noise. An real test situation is presented which involves a traceable characterization via a GPS receiver.
