A noise analysis algorithm and computer program is presented which is based on a relationship between the sensitivity of a network function to variations in the value of an element within the network and the noise associated with that element. The program can handle second order RC-operational amplifier networks and will compute the output noise over the user specified bandwidth. The voltage transfer function of the network is also computed. An infinite gain multiple feedback LP filter is analyzed and the results compared with another method.
