In this paper, we establish an appropriate system model for the terahertz (THz) wireless links in the range of 275 to 400 GHz, which accommodates the channel particularities and transceivers parameters. The former includes the frequency selectivity, pathloss, as well as the atmospheric conditions, namely temperature and pressure, whereas the latter are assumed to be consisted of the antenna gains as well as the power allocation of the transmitted signal. Moreover, we present analytical expressions of low computational complexity, for the evaluation of the average SNR, and capacity of the line of sight wireless THz links. These expressions are expected to be the key tools for the design of the THz link.
