Saturation (telecommunications)

In telecommunications, the term saturation has the following meanings:

*In a communications system, the condition at which a component of the system has reached its maximum traffic-handling capacity. "Note:" Saturation is equivalent to one erlang per circuit.

*The point at which the output of a linear device, such as a linear amplifier, deviates significantly from being a linear function of the input when the input signal is increased. "Note:" Modulation often requires that amplifiers operate below saturation. Source: from Federal Standard 1037C and from MIL-STD-188
