To calculate the noise in submicron structures we need the knowledge of the local noise sources and the generalised impedance fields. The scattered packet method has been used to obtain both quantities at the same microscopic level. Numerical procedures used for the calculation of velocity and energy noise sources and the simulation of the spatiotemporal evolution of local perturbations introduced on velocity or energy are described and some results obtained for p-type silicon are given.
