Use this calculator to convert **dBm** (deciBel referenced to 1 milliwatt) to **μW** (**Microwatt)**.

**Formula**

**P _{uW} = (10^{PdBm/10})*10^{3}**

where

**P**is the power in microwatt_{uW}**P**_{dBm}_{ }is the power in dBm

**Example Calculations**

- 0 dBm power is equivalent to 1000 microwatt
- -10 dBm power is equivalent to 10 microwatt

**Background**

**dBm** (decibel-milliwatts) is a unit of power measurement that expresses the power level in decibels relative to 1 milliwatt (mW). It is commonly used in telecommunications, radio, and audio engineering to measure the power of signals.

**Reference Point**: dBm is referenced to 1 milliwatt (mW). This means**0 dBm**is equal to**1 mW**of power.**Logarithmic Scale**: The dBm scale is logarithmic, making it convenient to represent a wide range of power levels. A logarithmic scale is useful because it compresses large ranges of values into a more manageable form.

A **Microwatt** (µW) is a unit of power equal to one millionth of a watt (W). It is commonly used to measure very small amounts of power, particularly in fields such as electronics, telecommunications, and medical devices.

A microwatt (µW) is a unit of power equal to one millionth of a watt. It is commonly used to measure very small amounts of power, especially in applications involving low-power electronics, sensors, and communication devices.

**Definition and Conversion**

**1 µW = 0.000001 W = 10 ^{−6} Watt**
