Posted by 31 August, 2009 Comments Off on Signal to Noise Ratio

The ratio makes a comparison between the levels of a signal that is desirable to the level of the noise in the background.

When the signal to noise ratio is high, it means that the background noise is not very obtrusive. The signal to noise ratio is usually expressed in terms of decibels.
