Thru-Reflect-Line calibration has a number of advantages over the SOLT method often used in VNA calibration. For SOLT calibration, the standards must be accurately characterized. The opens and shorts might be characterized by electromagnetic simulation of the physical design or have associated one-port “data-base” files obtained by highly precise measurement.
Copper Mountain Technologies will be displaying a number of its most popular vector network analyzers at the premiere EDI CON USA in Booth 715 in the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Mass. Sept 20-22, 2016.
Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) and Farran Technology Ltd. (FTL) have worked together to create CobaltFx, an entirely new piece of technology for millimeter-wave S-parameter measurements that establishes lab quality results in a more compact and significantly more affordable solution.
