Uncertainty Analysis for Noise-Parameter Measurements



James P. Randa


A brief summary is presented for the uncertainty analysis for measurements of noise parameters of amplifiers and transistors, in both connectorized (coaxial) and on-wafer environments. We treat both the X-parameters, which are based on the wave representation of the noise correlation matrix, and the traditional IEEE noise parameters.
