Noise macromodel for radio frequency integrated circuits


Conference Paper

Noise performance is a critical analog and RF circuit design constraint, and can impact the selection of the IC system-level architecture. It is therefore imperative that some model of the noise is represented at the highest levels of abstraction during the design process. In this paper we propose a noise macromodel for analog circuits and demonstrate it by way of implementation in a system level simulator based on MATLAB. We also explain our process of macromodel extraction via reformulation of frequency-domain noise analysis results, and the corresponding steps of model order reduction. The results demonstrate the efficacy of this macromodel for frequency domain system level simulation. © 2003 IEEE.
