HP 12C: Statistical Signal to Noise Ratio

HP 12C:   Statistical Signal to Noise Ratio


Introduction and The Formula


There are many parameters that can be used to measure signal to noise ratio.   Today's formula will concentrate on the statistical measurements of univariate (1-variable) data.  The signal to noise ratio (SNR) is defined as the inverse of the ratio of the coefficient of variation, or the ratio of the mean to deviation.


SNR = mean / deviation


In the sources listed below (see the Sources section), they define the ratio as:


SNR = mean / standard deviation


However, the sources define standard deviation as:


√( ∑(x_i - mean for i = 1 to n) / (1 - n )


This is the formula for sample standard deviation, and that is the deviation this program will use.


HP 12C Program:  SNR


STEP KEY     KEY CODE

01 x-bar 43, 0

02 STO 0 44, 0

03 s         43, 48

04 RCL 0 45, 0

05 x<>y 34

06 ÷         10

07 GTO 00         43, 33, 00


Notes:


1.  x-bar displays the mean for both x and y data in their respective stacks.  Since we are only interested in the x data, I had to store the mean in R0.

2.  Similarly, calling up the s function displays the standard deviation for both x and y. 

3.  In statistics, only certain registers are available for storing values.  The HP 12C stores the following calculations during statistics:  R1: n,  R2: ∑x, R3: ∑x^2, R4: ∑y, R5: ∑y^2, R6: ∑xy.  


Instructions


1.  Clear the statistical data registers by pressing [ f ], [ SST ].

2.  Enter the data by using [ ∑+ ].

3.  Run the program by pressing [ R/S ].


Examples


Note:  The HP 12C is set to Fix 4 mode for these examples.  


Example 1: 

Data:  10, 35, 76, 49, 52, 56

SNR:  2.0883

(Mean:  46.3333,  Sample Standard Deviation:  22.1871)


Example 2:

Data:  50, 30, 20, 35, 25

SNR:  2.78000

(Mean:  32.0000,  Sample Standard Deviation: 11.5109)
