An efficient and accurate noise parameter statistical extraction algorithm is proposed and validated experimentally using a high performance Silicon MOSFET transistor. The proposed algorithm is applicable to most devices with high input reflection coefficients and operating over wide bandwidth. Measured data agree well with theoretical expectation.
