    In electronics all components produce some level of noise. In an electronic device or system, the total noise of all components is measured as the self-noise of the device or system. This measurement is taken into account when dealing with signal to noise ratios. The inherent noise is considered the noise floor, and the difference between that and the level of the signal is referred to as the signal to noise ratio.
