Dynamic range

The ratio between the highest and lowest signal a system can handle is defined as the dynamic range of the system. To correctly measure the signal, the dynamic range must be high enough. Otherwise, the high signals will be cut and distorted and low signals will be hidden in system noise. In technical terms, the dynamic range is typically given in dB:

DR= 20logV_{max}/V_{min}
