Introduction One of the most frequently asked questions about VNAs goes something like this: “What about calibration?” It’s an unfortunate reality that in the English language, calibration has two completely distinct […]
Introduction It is commonly accepted that a good vector network analyzer should have both excellent hardware performance and an easy to use software interface with useful post-processing capabilities. There are […]
USB Vector Network Analyzers are the next generation of advanced RF test & instrumentation. Performance, form factor, security and lower cost of ownership make these analyzers ideal for many RF and microwave […]
This video reviews waveguide SSL and TRL calibration types and explains what errors are removed from vector network analyzer measurements when they are calibrated.
There are many ways a vector network analyzer can be calibrated and there are benefits and drawbacks to each type. This video review the techniques for calibrating a VNA.
TRL is Thru-Reflect-Line Calibration and is intended for 2-port VNAs. This video reviews this type of calibration and the benefits and drawbacks to TRL calibration.
SOLT calibration uses Short-Open-Load-Thru standards. SOLR calibration of a network analyzer uses Short-Open-Load-Reciprocal standards. This video reviews this type of calibration for a VNA and the benefits and drawbacks of […]
This video serves as an introduction to vector network analyzers and what they can provide for measuring frequency.
Curious about what type of measurements the vector network analyzer creates? They are called S-parameters. This video explains these measurements and how the information they measure can be used.
