# Noise sources

To implement the frequency dependencies of all common noise PSDs the following equation can be used.

## Noise voltage source

A noise voltage source (voltage power spectral density ) cannot be modeled with the noise current matrix. That is why one has to use a noise current source (current power spectral density ) connected to a gyrator (transimpedance ) satisfying the equation

Figure 9.7 shows an example.

The MNA matrix entries of the above construct (gyrator ratio ) is similiar to a voltage source with zero voltage.

The appropriate noise current correlation matrix yields:

## Correlated noise sources

For two correlated noise current sources the (normalized) correlation coefficient must be known (with ). If the first noise source has the current power spectral density and is connected to node 1 and 2, and if furthermore the second noise source has the spectral density and is connected to node 3 and 4, then the correlation matrix writes:

For two correlated noise voltage sources two extra rows and columns are needed in the MNA matrix:

Note: Because the gyrator factor (It is unity.) has been omitted in the above matrix the units are not correct. This can be ignored.
