Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) has traditionally been performed using a fast oscilloscope and a very sharp impulse or step type excitation. Reflections from the excitation are measured at the source […]
This video demonstrates how to make Pulsed S-parameter Measurements using a VNA.
You would not want to complete a series of measurements to only later find them tainted by a bad cable. The Confidence Check feature of the Automatic Calibration Module (ACM) […]
Why is it that Reflection measurements are typically only specified to -35 dB? Meanwhile, Transmission measurements are valid to -85 or -90 dB or more. This is a common question […]
Learn about the latest industry trends taking the world of RF and Microwave network analyzers by storm.
How can I make a measurement with a USB vector network analyzer remotely from the operating computer? We often see this question from our VNA users and want to make […]
Many applications of a VNA require multiport or differential circuitry and this video explains how to use a 4-port VNA to make such measurements.
Vector network analyzers can make more accurate measurements if the de-embedding, embedding, and port extension software features are utilized.
In some applications of network analyzers, it is necessary to automate the VNA measurements. This video reviews the interfaces that the vector network analyzer measurements can be automated in.
