Decibel-milliwatt (dBm)

dBm definition

dBm or decibel-milliwatt is an electrical power unit in decibels (dB), referenced to 1 milliwatt (mW).

The power in decibel-milliwatts (P(dBm)) is equal to 10 times base 10 logarithm of the power in milliwatts (P(mW)):

P(dBm) = 10 ⋅ log10( P(mW) / 1mW)

The power in milliwatts (P(mW)) is equal to 1mW times 10 raised by the power in decibel-milliwatts (P(dBm)) divided by 10:

P(mW) = 1mW ⋅ 10(P(dBm) / 10)

1 milliwatt is equal to 0 dBm:

1mW = 0dBm

1 watt is equal to 30dBm:

1W = 1000mW = 30dBm

How to convert mW to dBm

How to convert power in milliwatts (mW) to dBm.

The power in dBm is equal to the base 10 logarithm of the power in milliwatts (mW):

P(dBm) = 10 ⋅ log10( P(mW) / 1mW)

For example: what is the power in dBm for power consumption of 100mW?

Solution:

P(dBm) = 10 ⋅ log10( 100mW / 1mW) = 20dBm

How to convert dBm to mW

How to convert power in dBm to milliwatts (mW).

The power in milliwatts (P(mW)) is equal to 10 raised by the power in dBm (P(dBm)) divided by 10?

P(mW) = 1mW ⋅ 10(P(dBm) / 10)

For example: what is the power in milliwatts for power consumption of 20dBm?

Solution:

P(mW) = 1mW ⋅ 10(20dBm / 10) = 100mW

How to convert Watt to dBm

How to convert power in watts (W) to dBm.

The power in dBm is equal to the base 10 logarithm of the power in watts (W) plus 30dB:

P(dBm) = 10 ⋅ log10( P(W) / 1W) + 30

For example: what is the power in dBm for power consumption of 100W?

Solution:

P(dBm) = 10 ⋅ log10( 100W / 1W) + 30 = 50dBm

How to convert dBm to Watt

How to convert power in dBm to watts (W).

The power in watts (P(W)) is equal to 10 raised by the power in dBm (P(dBm)) minus 30dB divided by 10:

P(W) = 1W ⋅ 10( (P(dBm)- 30) / 10)

For example: what is the power in watts for power consumption of 40dBm?

Solution:

P(W) = 1W ⋅ 10( (40dBm - 30) / 10) = 10W

How to convert dBW to dBm

How to convert power in dBW to dBm.

The power in dBm is equal to the base 10 logarithm of the power in watts (W):

P(dBm) = P(dBW) + 30

For example: what is the power in dBm for power consumption of 20dBW?

Solution:

P(dBm) = 20dBW + 30 = 50dBm

How to convert dBm to dBW

How to convert power in dBm to dBW.

The power in dBW (P(dBW)) is equal to 10 raised by the power in dBm (P(dBm)) divided by 10:

P(dBW) = P(dBm) - 30

For example: what is the power in watts for power consumption of 40dBm?

Solution:

P(dBW) = 40dBm - 30 = 10dBW

How to convert dB to dBm

dB is a relative unit that describes gain and dBm is an absolute unit referenced to 1 milliwatt (mW).

So you can't convert dB to dBm.
