Parameter Extraction Strategy
Parameter extraction is performed from real and imaginary parts of the Y-parameters. Each parameter is extracted from the Y-parameter equations which contain frequency terms.

To fit a straight line to the data plot, linear regression is used.

With the X data, the independent variable, and the Y data, the dependent variable, the estimated linear regression model is stated;

where the parameters, A and B, are estimated by the method of least squares.

A is the intercept :

B is the slope :

The standard deviation is defined as Where (Xi,Yi) are the data points,

N is the number of data points,

Parameters such as Cgd, Cgs, Rg, Cdg, Cjd, and Cds are extracted as a function of frequency and in these cases the extracted values are determined by their mean value. The mean of parameter is calculated by

where Pi are the extracted parameter values as a function of frequency.
