A new approach, based on the typical T-model of InP DHBT, has been developed which uses only a simple set of formulas to transform noise parameters between common emitter and common base configurations. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental results demonstrating that this approach is useful for many broadband low noise communication circuit designs.
