cascade - Noise and distortion analysis for cascaded systems.

cascade [GNU style options]

cascade file

The cascade program analyzes the noise and distortion performance of a cascaded system. The functional blocks in the system are each characterized by a gain and optionally noise figure and third order intercept point. In addition a source with a particular signal level and noise level may be specified. Cascade then calculates the system noise figure and input third order intercept at each stage. If the source was specified, the signal level, carrier to noise ratio, and distortion level is reported at each stage in the system.

Cascade accepts the following options.
