Convert Voltage to dBm and dBm to Voltage (peak-peak and RMS)


dBm is power referenced to 1mW, where Rref is the system impedance

by substitution


and again by substitution

Since most systems, including the Bode 100 are 50Ohms, this can be reduced to,

And we can also solve for Vrms or Vpp from dBm
