Technique for Improving Low Insertion Loss VNA Measurements Application Note

Vector network analyzers (VNAs) are used to measure the performance of a wide variety of passive and active RF and microwave devices. Passive devices can be less demanding to test than active devices, thus requiring less performance from the VNA. However, one interesting exception to this is the measurement of very low insertion loss passive components such as precision adapters or airlines. These types of devices can present a difficult challenge to characterize because of the desire for very low uncertainties on these small insertion losses. This application note talks about these challenges and provides a helpful technique. P/N: 11410-01090

Superposition vs. True-Balanced: What's Required for your Signal Integrity Application White Paper

The superposition technique relies on the inherent linear nature of a transmission line, and mathematically derives the differential and common-mode transmission line characteristics through superposition while stimulating just one side of the balanced transmission line at a time. The true-balanced/differential technique, also known as True-Mode Stimulus, uses two sources to create actual differential and common-mode stimuli. This white paper offers guidance to signal integrity designers on the differences between these approaches and which one may best fit their need. P/N: 11410-00659
