Abstract
NOISE PARAMETER MEASUREMENTS OF MICROWAVE TRANSISTORS AND MMICS ARE BEST PERFORMED WITH ON-WAFER, PROBE SYSTEMS. TWO KEY PARAMETERS OF THESE SYSTEMS IS THE LOSS FROM THE INPUT TUNER TO THE DEVICE UNDER TEST (DUT), AND FROM THE DUT TO THE RECEIVER; THIS IS TYPICALLY DOMINATED BY THE WAFER PROBE. THIS PHASE I WORK WILL DEMONSTRATE A WAFER PROBE PROTOYPE WITH SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER LOSS THAN CURRENTLY AVAILVABLE, WHILE MAINTAINING LOW RETURN LOSS AND HIGH ACCURACY.
