On-Wafer Noise-Parameter Measurements at NIST



James P. Randa, Dave K. Walker


NIST has developed the capability to measure noise parameters on a wafer int he 1-12.4 GHz range. In this paper we briefly describe the measurement methods and the uncertainty analysis and present results of measurements on a very poorly matched transistor.
