1 GENERAL OVERVIEW
Method of calibration performed for reflection and
one-way transmission measurements, for example for
measuring S11 and S21 only. It ensures high accuracy
for reflection measurements, and mean accuracy for
Method of calibration performed for full S-parameter
matrix measurement of a two-port DUT. It ensures
TRL calibration Method of calibration performed for full S-parameter
matrix measurement of a two-port DUT. LRL and
LRM types of this calibration are also supported. In
ensures higher accuracy than a two-port calibration.
The user can select one of the predefined calibration
kits of various manufacturers or define own
Electronic calibration modules manufactured by
PLANAR make the Analyzer calibration faster and
easier than traditional mechanical calibration.
Sliding load calibration
The use of sliding load calibration standard allows
significant increase in calibration accuracy at high
frequencies compared to the fixed load calibration
The use of an arbitrary reciprocal two-port device
instead of a zero-length thru during a full two-port
calibration allows for calibration of the test setup for
measurements of the non-insertable devices.
Defining of calibration
Different methods of calibration standard defining are
§standard defining by polynomial model
§standard defining by data (S-parameters).
When the user changes such settings as start/stop
frequencies and number of sweep points, compared to
the settings of calibration, interpolation or
extrapolation of the calibration coefficients will be
