1. Accurate Differential Device Characterization Using VectorStar
Differential devices are used in a variety of applications. This seminar will explain how a Vector Network analyzer can be used to characterize these devices and given an overview of the methodologies available to make such measurements. In particular the appropriate use of superposition and true mode stimulus methodologies will be covered. In addition, test fixtures are often used thereby further increasing the likelihood of inappropriate DUT evaluation. This workshop will discuss how the advanced capabilities of fixture de-embedding within VectorStar, together with a real time display of corrected measurements, can improve the device analysis and device characterization.
2. What Have You Been Missing In Your Pulsed VNA Measurements?
This workshop will discuss pulse measurement methods used by VNAs and the associated trade-offs. The differences between narrowband and wideband methodologies will be the explained and the associated benefits to the user will be presented. Application to component measurements and on-wafer measurements will be discussed.
3. Demystify Noise Figure Measurements
This workshop will discuss different approaches to noise figure measurements and the associated advantages and disadvantages. Secondly, implementation techniques and trade-offs for the cold-source noise figure measurement method will be examined. Finally, a model for uncertainties will be presented, highlighting those areas which often need the most attention.
4. Improved Measurements Overcome High-Speed Interconnect Challenges
As speeds increase, signal integrity engineers increasingly have to make measurements using microwave vector network analyzers. Various considerations will be highlighted including the importance of the extent of the measurement frequency range at low and high ends, how this affects achieving correlation between 3D-EM simulation and measurement, and some practical de-embedding techniques.
5. Advances in mm-Wave and TeraHz region Materials Measurements
Materials measurement possibilities in the mm-wave range have improved in terms of repeatability, accuracy, and sample configurations. This supports those interested in the spectroscopic nature of the measurements and those wanting to identify specific biological, pharmacological or simple molecular behaviors. Waveguide-fixtured measurements of liquids and solids will be presented in W-band including those parameterized with temperature. Free-space measurements of sheet-like materials based on horn antenna configurations from 70 GHz to 500 GHz will also be shown.
