Direct extraction of all four transistor noise parameters from 50 noise figure measurements
Rights accessOpen Access
A new method for measuring the four noise parameters (NPs) of a transistor is presented. It is based on the determination of its intrinsic noise matrix elements (C11INT, C22INT, Re(C12INT), Im(C12INT)) by fitting the measured device noise figure for a matched source reflection coefficient (F50) at a number of frequency points. In contrast to previous works, no restrictive assumptions are made on the intrinsic noise sources.

Open AccessThermal management of nano estructures requires the use of temperature monitoring strategies. In this work we expose a strategy bases on sensing the heat-flux within the chip substrate with a probe-laser beam. As the beam ...
