NAME
       cascade - Noise and distortion analysis for cascaded systems.

SYNOPSIS
       cascade [GNU style options]

       cascade file

DESCRIPTION
       The  cascade program analyzes the noise and distortion performance of a
       cascaded	system.	 The functional	blocks in the system are each  charac-
       terized by a gain and optionally	noise figure and third order intercept
       point.  In addition a source with a particular signal level  and	 noise
       level  may be specified.	 Cascade then calculates the system noise fig-
       ure and input third order intercept at each stage.  If the  source  was
       specified,  the	signal	level,	carrier	to noise ratio,	and distortion
       level is	reported at each stage in the system.

       Cascade accepts the following options.

       --copyright    Displays copyright information.

       --help	      Displays help information.

       --version      Displays current version of the program.
