And we also define the noise transforming factor of transconductance stage [alpha]([omega]) = [[infinity].summation over (n=-[infinity])[[absolute value of [P.sub.n]([omega])].sup.2].
And we also define the noise transforming factor of switching pairs [beta]([omega]) = [[infinity].summation over (n=-[infinity])][[absolute value of [G.sub.n]([omega])].sup.2].
And we also define the effective noise transforming factor of switching pairs [[beta].sub.eff]([omega]) = [[infinity].summation over (n=-[infinity]][[absolute value of [G.sub.eff,n]([omega])].sup.2].
6, high [f.sub.LO] will roughly increase the numerical value of effective noise transforming factor of switching pairs [[beta].sub.eff]([omega]), which is similar to [beta]([omega]).
As shown in the next section, only by numerically computing several frequency-dependent noise transforming factors, the noise characteristic of the mixer can be conveniently predicted even if [f.sub.LO] is high, which is fairly desirable for designs and optimizations.
The reason for this is attributed to the deteriorated transforming factors c([omega]), [alpha]([omega]), [beta]([omega]), and [[beta].sub.eff]([omega]) resulted by increased [f.sub.LO] as in Figs.
The genetic material was also called the "transforming factor" because in previous experiments performed by Franklin Griffith it could transform bacteria of one genotype to another.
For this exercise, students treat their purified plasmid (transforming factor) with amylase, protease, DNase, or RNase, and then perform a transformation.
This extension of the traditional transformation lab can demonstrate then to the students the results similar to what Oswald Avery, Maclyn McCarty, and Colin MacLeod saw, that DNA is in fact the transforming factor!
