dynamic range

A measure of the ability of an amplifier, transducer, receiver, or other kind of sensor to measure both weak and strong signals.

Specifically, the range of input levels, ordinarily expressed in decibels, over which the system can operate within some specified range of performance; for example, the range over which the response of the system is linear or approximately linear.
