Unformatted text preview: component due to soldering and other parasitic elements and the phase delay. 4 V. Conclusion The Vector Network Analyzer is a tool, used at high frequencies, which measures s- parameters, because reflection and transmission of electrical networks are easy to measure at high frequencies. As illustrated by the plots obtained by VNA before and after calibration, the calibration of VNA improves the accuracy of measurements. Moreover, simulating a port- extension by adding a t- line delay in ADS shows us that the port extension’s role is to compensate the parasitic delay introduced by elements between the transmission line and the port on the board. To summarize, this first lab makes us be acquainted with the procedures to calibrate a VNA and apply a port- extension and makes us understand their positive effect on our measurements. 5...
