3 GETTING STARTED
nAnalyze SWR and reflection coefficient phase using markers.
Note In this section the control over Analyzer is performed by
the softkeys located in the right-hand part of the screen.
The Analyzer also allows the user to perform quick
control by the mouse (See section 4.3).
3.1 Analyzer Preparation for Reflection Measurement
Turn on the Analyzer and warm it up for the period of time stated in the specifications.
Ready state features The bottom line of the screen displays the instrument
status bar. It should read Ready. Above this bar, the
channel status bar is located. The sweep indicator in the
left-hand part of this bar should display a progress.
Connect the DUT to Port 1 of the Analyzer. Use the appropriate cables and adapters for
connection of the DUT input to the Analyzer test port. If the DUT input is type-N
(male), you can connect the DUT directly to the port.
3.2 Analyzer Presetting
Before you start the measurement session, it is recommended to reset the Analyzer into
the initial (known) condition. The initial condition setting is described in Appendix 1.
To restore the initial condition of the Analyzer, use the
System > Preset > OK
3.3 Stimulus Setting
After you have restored the preset state of the Analyzer, the stimulus parameters will be
as follows: frequency range from 300 kHz to 8.0 GHz, sweep type is linear, number of
sweep points is 201, and power level is 0 dBm.
For the current example, set the frequency range to from 10 MHz to 3 GHz.
