### Abstract

The effects of the nth law amplifier on signal-to-noise ratio has not been represented as a function of the input signal-to-noise ratio when the input of the nonlinear device contains non-Gaussian noise. This paper analyzes these effects and determine the improvement factor presented by the ratio of the output snr to the input snr. The results are illustrated by the calculation of the improvement factor for the cases where the input noise amplitude distributions are the uniform distribution, the triangle distribution, and the Rician distribution.
