VNA 101 Bootcamp: VNA Measurement Techniques for Antenna Test

A Copper Mountain Technologies’ VNA can make antenna measurements easy. If a pair of antennas must be measured at close range, a simple 2-port measurement can be made. For the evaluation of antenna patterns, a reference antenna can be utilized to normalize the illuminating signal. Various methods of antenna measurement, from simple to sophisticated will be examined and explained. A field pattern measurement of an antenna using a rotating platform will be demonstrated.

New Developments in Microwave Materials Measurements

Webinar: New Developments in Microwave Materials Measurements

Tabletop Materials Measurements

Fundamental to microwave device design is knowing the electromagnetic performance of materials used in the device. Whether it is a microwave substrate, an antenna radome, or an electromagnetic inference absorber, methods are needed to evaluate materials and determine their intrinsic dielectric and magnetic properties. Designers use these intrinsic parameters (permittivity and permeability) to develop or optimize microwave and RF components. Measuring the performance of microwave materials requires a system that includes i) a measurement fixture and ii) a microwave analyzer. The fixture and the analyzer are usually connected with microwave or radio frequency (RF) cables.

Offset Frequency Measurements with a VNA

VNA Master Class: Offset Frequency Measurements with a VNA Webinar

A Copper Mountain Technologies VNA can make offset measurements where the stimulus and receiver are not at the same frequencies. This allows for the characterization of upconverters, downconverters, and mixers. Because the frequencies differ, phase measurement has no meaning and only scalar amplitude is determined. Vector mixer calibration utilizing a de-embedded reference mixer makes the stimulus and receiver measurements the same and allows for full amplitude and phase characterization of the mixer under test. De-embedding of the reference mixer requires a second-tier calibration. In this webinar, both of these methods will be demonstrated.

Effects of Random Factors on the Metrology of VNA Measurement

VNA Master Class: Effects of Random Factors on the Metrology of VNA Measurement Webinar

Contributing factors to the uncertainty of a VNA measurement can be either random or systematic. Systematic errors may be greatly reduced through a calibration process such as Short, Open, Load and Thru (SOLT) or Thru, Reflect and Line (TRL), or any of a number of other methods. Random factors cannot be reduced by any algorithmic means because they are naturally random and unpredictable. However, certain measurement techniques can reduce them, which will be the topic of this webinar.

Metrology Accuracy VNA Measurements

A fully metrological measurement made by a VNA is comprised of a value, a unit, an uncertainty, and the confidence interval of the uncertainty. Measurement uncertainty, or the accuracy, is stated on the VNA datasheet. Still, a complete understanding of the error components which contribute to overall uncertainty is helpful to inform and enable the user of the equipment to make the best possible measurements.

Using VNAs for High-Speed Digital Applications

VNA 101 Bootcamp: Using VNAs for High-Speed Digital Applications Webinar

Creating and evaluating high-speed digital designs now requires extensive knowledge of RF principles. Improperly designed power plane systems can couple noise from one section of the design to another. High-speed differential SRDES lines must exhibit proper characteristic impedance, and the sources of reflection must be properly understood. This webinar will address some of these issues and show how a VNA might be used to analyze and improve a high-speed digital design. USB-C and HDMI cables contain multiple high-speed twisted pair conductors. The four pairs in an HDMI cable may be thoroughly analyzed for differential Insertion Loss, Return Loss, and pair-to-pair Near and Far End Crosstalk (NEXT and FEXT) using the new SN5090 16-port VNA from Copper Mountain Technologies.
