The link budget provides a means to design a transceiver and to perform the necessary analysis to ensure that the design is optimal for the given set of requirements. The link budget provides a way to easily make system trade-offs and to ensure that the transceiver operates properly over the required range. Once known or specified parameters are entered, the link budget is used to solve for the unknown parameters. If there is more than one unknown parameter, then the trade-offs need to be considered. The link budget is continually reworked, including the trade-offs, to obtain the best system design for the link. Generally a spreadsheet is used for ease of changing the values of the parameters and monitoring the effects of the change.
