In this paper, we present a novel two-path channel model for wireless terahertz (THz) systems operating in the range of 275 to 400 GHz, which accommodates both the channel particularities and the transceivers parameters. The channel particularities include the frequency selectivity, path-loss, as well as the atmospheric conditions, namely temperature, relative humidity and pressure, while the transceiver parameters, which are taken into account, are the antenna gains as well as the power of the transmitted signal. Finally, we evaluated the THz system performance in terms of average signal to noise ratio and ergodic capacity.
