Vector network analyzers

PTB-News 3.2015
Especially interesting for

high-frequency technology

Various coaxial calibrators

Vector network analyzers (VNA) which, in high-frequency technology, calibrate the transmission characteristics of active and passive components in the frequency range of micro- and millimeter waves, can now be calibrated faster thanks to a new method developed by PTB. Instead of working with calibrators of the identical connector system, as has been the case to date, different – but compatible – connectors are now used. Discontinuity effects which occur here are compensated for during the modeling. (Technology Offer 0335)


only one calibration kit required for mechanically compatible connector systems
