The ability of a receiver to identify and amplify signals at the receivers input is called Receiver Sensitivity. It is expressed in dBm. The receiver sensitivity level tells us the weakest signal that a receiver will be able to identify and process. It can be improved by reducing the noise level and bandwidth of the receiver.

A typical range for receiver sensitivity for RF modules is below -50 to -100 dBm.
