Power conversion formula for dBm to Watts

As an electronic components company, we know that electrical engineers use decibel-milliwatts (dBm) the most for power specifications since it is much easier to work with. It simplifies calculations with large numbers and large dynamic ranges using the log scales rather than the linear scale. A decibel-milliwatt is a unit of level used to indicate that a power ratio is expressed in decibels (dB) with reference to one milliwatt (mW). A decibel is a comparison between two levels, paired with a watt, transforms it to an absolute unit. It is a convenient measure of absolute power in radio, microwave, and fiber-optical communication networks. Power levels express in dBm are not always as meaningful as powers expressed in watts. Which is why our converter is here for your convenience.
