dBm stands for decibels (dB) relative to one milliwatt. It is an absolute unit of power.
This tool adds any number of dBm power values to compute the total power.
Simply enter the powers in dBm with each number separated by a Comma.
Explanation of how to add dBm
Note that since dBm is a logarithmic value, dBm values cannot be added directly.
Instead we have to:
- Convert dBm to Watt
- Add Watt values
- Convert the result in Watt back to dBm
The sum of power levels 30 dBm and 3 dBm is 30.01 dBm (not 33 dBm).
The sum of three powers 40 dBm, 30 dBm and 10 dBm is 40.42 dBm
