This application provides a macro which enables full multiport error correction and measurement capabilities using external switch instruments.
>> Provides multiport calibrated measurements using external switch matrix module
>> P9164A/65A USB 6.5 GHz 2x8 switch and P9164B/65B USB 9 GHz 2x16 switches supported
>> Controls the calibrations and measurements for VNA and switch matrix
>> Measurement data is converted and transferred to a VNA viewer (acting as a multi-port VNA)
This application provides a macro which enables full multiport error correction and measurement capabilities using external switch instruments such as the M9164A/B or M9165A/B PXI solid-state switch matrix. The software includes an easy-to-use measurement wizard that simplifies measurement procedures and reduces the setup time of complicated multiport measurements. The VNA displays measured multiport S-parameters.
Multiport configurations using one P50xxA USB VNA and up to two switch matrices have been evaluated.
Only 4-port ECal modules (i.e. N4431/32/33D) are supported for multiport calibration with the S97553B.
