This paper analyses the noise and gain measurement of microwave differential amplifiers using two passive baluns. A model of the baluns that includes potential losses and unbalances has been considered. This analysis allows to de-embed the actual performance of the differential device from the single-ended measurements of the two-port cascaded system and the baluns. The method has been validated with measured results from a fully-differential amplifier prototype.
