Error correction interpolation
Calibration of a test setup (which includes the Analyzer, cables, and adapters) significantly
increases the accuracy of measurements. Calibration allows for correction of the errors caused
by imperfections in the measurement system: system directivity, source and load match,
tracking and isolation.
Calibration methods of various sophistication and accuracy enhancement level are available:
The most accurate among them are full one-port calibration; and full two-port calibration.
The simplest calibration method. It provides low accuracy.
Method of calibration performed for one-port reflection measurements. It ensures high
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 transmission measurements.
Method of calibration performed for full S-parameter matrix measurement of a two-port DUT. It
ensures high accuracy.
The user can select one of the predefined calibration kits of various manufacturers or define own
calibration kits.
Electronic calibration modules offered by PLANAR make the Analyzer calibration faster and
easier than traditional mechanical calibration.
The use of sliding load calibration standard allows significant increase in calibration accuracy at
high frequencies compared to the fixed load calibration standard.
Different methods of calibration standard defining are available:
- 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 at the moment of calibration, interpolation or extrapolation of the
calibration coefficients will be applied.
Supplemental Calibration Methods
Power calibration
Receiver calibration
Method of calibration, which allows more stable maintaining of the power level setting at the
DUT input. An external power meter should be connected to the USB port directly or via
USB/GPIB adapter to aUSB port of the computer running the analyzer software.

Data Analysis
Port impedance conversion
S-parameter conversion
Time domain transformation
Time domaingating
The function of conversion of the S-parameters measured at 50 W port into the values, which
could be determined if measured at a test port with arbitrary impedance.
The function allows to mathematically exclude from the measurement result the effect of the
fixture circuit connected between the calibration plane and the DUT. This circuit should be
described by an S-parameter matrix in a Touchstone file.
The function allows to mathematically simulate the DUT parameters after virtual integration of a
fixture circuit between the calibration plane and the DUT. This circuit should be described by an
S-parameter matrix in a Touchstone file.
The function allows conversion of the measured S-parameters to the following parameters:
reflection impedance and admittance, transmission impedance and admittance, and inverse Sparameters.
The function performs data transformation from frequency domain into response of the DUT to
various stimulus types in time domain. Modeled stimulus types: bandpass, lowpass impulse,
and lowpass step. Time domain span is set by the user arbitrarily from zero to maximum, which
is determined by the frequency step. Windows of various forms are used for better tradeoff
between resolution and level of spurious side lobes.
The function mathematically removes unwanted responses in time domain what allows for
obtaining frequency response without influence from the fixture elements. The function applies
reverse transformation back to frequency domain after cutting out the user-defined span in time
domain. Gating filter types: bandpass or notch. For better tradeoff between gate resolution and
level of spurious side lobes the following filter shapes are available: maximum, wide, normal and
Mixer / Converter Measurements
Scalar mixer / converter measurements
The scalar method allows measuring magnitude only of transmission coefficient of mixer and
other frequency translating devices . No external mixers or other devices are required. The
scalar method employs port frequency offset when there is difference between source port
frequency and receiver port frequency.
Vector mixer / converter measurements
Scalar mixer / converter calibration
Vector mixer /converter calibration
Automatic frequency offset adjustment
The vector method allows measuring both magnitude and phase of the mixer transmission
coefficient. The method requires an external mixer and a LO common for both the external mixer
and the mixer under test.
The most accurate method of calibration applied for measurements of mixers in frequency offset
mode. The OPEN, SHORT, and LOAD calibration standards are used. An external power meter
should be connected to the USB port directly or via USB/GPIB adapter.
Method of calibration applied for vector mixer measurements. OPEN, SHORT and LOAD
