This thesis will begin with an investigation on the limitations associated with the predominate two-port stability analysis techniques with respect to multi-stage RF amplifier design. The primary focus will be to investigate and develop network analysis techniques that allow internal ports to be created within a RF circuit. This technique will facilitate the application of existing stability analysis techniques in ways that are not commonly known. Examples of situations where traditional network and stability analysis is insufficient will be presented, and the application of the newly developed techniques will be examined.
