Maury Microwave has released its latest application note regarding characterizing uncertainty in S-parameter measurements, featured in the October 2019 edition of the Microwave Journal.
Article “Characterizing Uncertainty in S-Parameter Measurements” introduces the concepts of uncertainty and the benefits of uncertainties as they relate to S-parameter measurements. Uncertainty can aid in definitively verifying a VNA calibration before measuring a DUT. Uncertainty can help understanding how the various components in a measurement system impact the overall uncertainty of the DUT measurement. Identifying, quantifying and reducing the major sources of uncertainty in a test setup will improve the accuracy of the overall measurement.
