Computeraided noise analysis of linear multiport networks of arbitrary topology
Abstract
The paper discusses a new algorithm for the noise analysis of a linear multiport network. The circuit may include any kind of passive components introducing thermal noise only, and any number of twoport devices described by the usual four noise parameters. On output, the algorithm produces the correlation matrix of the Norton equivalent noise current sources at the network ports. The approach is suitable for implementation into any generalpurpose microwave circuit design program.
