A transistor is conveniently characterised by four real noise parameters available from outer-terminal measurements. This representation is easily implemented into a computer program for noise analysis. The Rothe-Dahlke noise circuit is used in connection with the adjoint-network concept, and no additional auxiliary nodes are required.
