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.
