Noise Parameters in RF Amplifier and Receiver Design
What you'll learn
- Theory behind Noise Parameter and Noise Figure measurements in RF Design
This course will give students a quick review of terminology and theory behind noise parameters. Making noise parameter and noise figure measurements are critical for design of RF components. We will look at common measurement techniques relative to the Smith Chart. The course provides clarity on optimum reflection, minimum signal loss and maximum signal admittance. Finally we will look at Y values and how recent techniques for Smith Chart analysis can limit the number of Y measurements needed to accurately obtain noise parameter values for a given RF amplifier/receiver design.
