University of California, Berkeley Fall 2011 EECS 142/242M Prof. A. Niknejad Problem Set 8 Due Thursday November 10, 2011 R 2 R 1 R 1 1. Consider a Π attenuator. (a) Find the values of R s and R p to realize an attenuation of 10 dB Z 0 = 50Ω. (b) Find the noise figure of the attenuator when it’s driven and loaded by a Z 0 = 50Ω resistor using circuit analysis. (c) Repeat the calculation using system level considerations. LNA Spectrum Analyzer Signal Source 2. Suppose that you wish to measure the noise figure of an amplifier. We need to de-embed the effects of the input cable, which has an attenuation of 3-dB. Using a spectrum analyzer, you measure the output noise power to be -71 dBm/MHz. When a small input signal is excited from the input, you find the overall gain (attenuator plus amplifier) to be 33 dB. What’s the noise figure of the amplifier?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
