November 19, 2018 - Rohde & Schwarz USA (R&S
USA) has produced a primer titled, "Fundamentals
of Modern Vector Network Analyzers - Primer."
One of the most common measuring tasks in RF engineering is the analysis of circuits,
from simple filters and amplifiers to complex satellite communication modules. As an
extremely versatile test instrument, a VNA is the ideal equipment for quickly and precisely
uncovering signal integrity problems, such as reflections and crosstalk. This primer
describes the fundamentals of vector network analysis, as well as practical instructions
for improving accuracy, performing calibration, and making typical linear and time-domain
In this primer you will learn about:
- Introduction to Network Analyzers
- Scattering Parameters (S-Parameters)
- Best Practices for VNA Accuracy
- VNA Calibration Techniques
- Linear VNA Measurements
- Reflection Coefficient
- Transmission Coefficient
- Group Delay
- Time-Domain Measurements
