Techniques for Precise Measurement
Calibrations in the Field
Using FieldFox Handheld Analyzers
This application note, which applies to cable and antenna and vector network analysis,
discusses recent advances in vector network analyzer calibration and compares
measurements using different calibration types for a variety of RF and microwave devices
including cables, filters and amplifiers. A FieldFox handheld analyzer is used to make the
various measurements, as it can perform precise measurements and analysis in the field.
Installation, troubleshooting and maintenance of RF and microwave systems and components require measurements
of their reflection and transmission characteristics within a variety of indoor and outdoor environments and conditions.
These measurements are typically made using a hand|
