A second-order difference equation is derived for both periodically and uniformly distributed parametric amplifiers. Using a two-frequency approximation the gain and the voltage output of the amplifier are computed. The results are specifically applied to an LC-distributed parametric amplifier and the gain computed for a capacity modulation index of 0.5, and for different normalized pump frequencies.
