Adding noise profiles to transistors in AWR

Good day,

I am a final year electronic engineering student at the university of Pretoria. I just started using AWR about 2 weeks ago.

I need to design a Wideband LNA in AWR for the 2-18GHz frequency range, but I have realised that I get a 0dB noise figure in my circuit, which obviously makes no sense. It seems that the transistors have no noise data, even the ones I use from the AWR libraries. I used an Infineon BFP840 for reference.

Does anyone know how to add realistic noise data to those models in AWR? If so, can this be explained?

Thanks in advance.
