Often the correlation matrices can be calculated without knowing the noise sources. If the two-port considered consists of only passive elements the thermal noise from it results in a correlation matrix of either of the two forms:

6. Noise of embedded networks
In a more recent paper Dobrowolski  has used a wave representation and enlarged the network to be considered. His network consists of interconnected passive multiports which introduce only thermal noise and active linear two-ports. It is also
ą░. requirement that the two-ports are interconnected two and two. DobrowolskiŌĆÖs results are applicable to computer aided design of noisy microwave circuits.
ą▒.4 Calculating noise parameters from deembedded data*
Pucel et al.  have shown a procedure to calculate noise parameters as functions of frequency for field effect transistors, FETŌĆÖs, and high electron mobility transistors, HEMTŌĆÖs. This is especially important at frequencies so high that it is very difficult to measure the noise parameters. If the noise parameters at one frequency and the parasitic elements of a transistor (with its encapsulation) are well known, the intrinsic elements and noise generators with their correlation can be computed by deembedding. As for FETŌĆÖs and HEMTŌĆÖs these noise parameters are approximately independent of frequency and the behaviour of the intrinsic equivalent circuit is well known, so it is possible to compute the S and noise parameters in a large frequency range. Thus computation replaces measurement which is a great advantage as noise parameter measurements are rather difficult at frequencies above 10 - 20 GHz. The authors claim sufficient accuracy up to at least 40 GHz.

CPd = PCPPi + DCdDi (e-S1)
where CP denotes the admittance correlation matrix of the packaged four-port and P and D represent package and device transformation matrices expressible
in terms of the admittance parameters of the package and device. The dae^er
denotes the Hermitian (conjugate transpose) of the associated matrix. Equation
(6.81) is used when the intrinsic parameters aie embedded in parasitic elements of the encapsulation.
Deembedding is performed by solving Equation (6.81) for C^: Previous << 1 .. 31 32 33 34 35 36 < 37 > 38 39 40 41 42 43 .. 85 >> Next
