Initially, choose . Compute the output stability circle and to check whether the position of is sufficient far away from the output stability circle, if not, change to accept higher noise based on the overlay of noise circles. For a given choice of , compute the input stability circle and overlay with constants operating gain circles. Choose a load termination on the gain circle which has the value of the specified gain and it should be in the stable region and far away the input stability circle, if not, change to accept higher noise based on the overlay of noise circles. And repeat the whole process such that a compromise can be reached on the value of noise figure and stability. Usually we can obtain higher gain values for a degradation in the noise figure.
