A certain 8 bit uniform quantization PCM system can accommodate a signal ranging from - 1 V to + V. The rms value of the signal is V . The signal to quantization noise ratio is:

Answer: Option

Explanation:

(SNR)_{dB} = 1.76 + 6.02*n*

*n* = 8

Thus (SNR)_{dB} = 1.76 + 6.02 x 8 = 49.92 dB.

(SNR) db = 10 log 1.5 + 2 n*10 log 2.

Log1.5 value = 0.176,

Log 2 value = 0 3010,

N= 8.

10 * 0.176 + 2*8*0.3010* 10.

1.76 + 4.816*10,

1.76 + 48.16,

49.92 db.

Log1.5 value = 0.176,

Log 2 value = 0 3010,

N= 8.

10 * 0.176 + 2*8*0.3010* 10.

1.76 + 4.816*10,

1.76 + 48.16,

49.92 db.

Answer given is the wrong answer is option D.

Signal power is (1/2)^2=1/4 and noise power is 1^2/(3*2^16). Then after signal power /noise power expressed in dB answer will be 46.91approx.

How come 1.76+6.02?

Can anyone please solve this clearly?

Snr = 1.5 x 2^2n.

In db, snr (dB) = 10log 1.5 + 2n x 10log 2.

In db, snr (dB) = 10log 1.5 + 2n x 10log 2.
