Abstract:

This report presents some theoretical properties of noise pulses which are generated by a random process crossing a fixed threshold level. The random waveshapes of the noise pulses are determined solely by the underlying random process and the fixed threshold level. For an arbitrary threshold level, this report considers the durations of the noise pulses, the average pulse amplitude, the RMS pulse amplitude, the average pulse area, and the average pulse energy when the underlying random process is either a sinusoidal process, a Gaussian process, or the envelope of a Gaussian process. Some numerical results are presented in graphs. Author
