Is it possible to view the source code of a SpectreRF function?
Apr 30th, 2021, 3:32am
 
There is a function in SpectreRF called "pn", it takes as an argument the results of a noise analysis and outputs the phase noise data at a given frequency (for example, pn('hbnoise)).


Is it possible to view the SKILL source code of this function to see how it's implemented? I'm more interested in the formula/convention that's used to define the phase noise (measured in dBc/Hz) rather than the code itself.

Say I do a PM noise analysis, and let's call the phase modulation magnitude spectrum outputted A in (V/sqrt(Hz)). Which mathematical formula does pn apply on A? Is it 10log(A^2/power(harmonic(1))? or 10log(A^2/harmonic(1)^2)? or is it something else?
