Vector Mixer Measurements Copper Mountain Technologies

Apr 13, 2020  The vector mixer measurement is a combination of a 2-port calibration and a de-embedding function (See Figure 1). The de-embedding function requires an S-parameter file of the circuit. Acquisition of such a file for the calibration mixer/filter pair is called vector mixer calibration. To obtain an S-parameter file of the calibration mixer ...

Vector Network Analyzer - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

A vector network analyzer is an instrument that measures the frequency response of a component or a network composed of many components, which can be both passive and active. A VNA measures the power of a high-speed signal going into and coming back from a component or a network, because power, in contrast to voltage and current, can be measured accurately at high frequencies.
