This paper describes design techniques for low-noise HF amplifiers in bipolar and CMOS technologies for matching a reactive source. For both capacitive and inductive sources, general noise matching conditions are derived. The best noise performance obtainable by using bipolar and CMOS approaches are determined. Design examples and measurement results are presented which confirm the theoretical analyses.
