Noise is an important non-ideal aspect in most electronic circuits. A discussion of the noise properties of TransLinear (TL) circuits is therefore of fundamental importance. Furthermore, Static TransLinear (STL) circuits do not have a particularly good reputation when it comes to noise [47, 81] and it is likely that Dynamic TransLinear (DTL) circuits inherit these noise characteristics.

- 1.In principle, this transformation of VRB yields besides a noise current source between the collector and emitter terminals also a noise voltage source in series with the collector terminal. However, the influence of the latter on the collector current is negligible, due to the high transistor output impedance.Google Scholar
