The performance of a dual six-port network analyzer using diode detectors is described. The network analyzer operates over the 2-18-GHz band using commercially available low-barrier Schottky diodes. The paper describes the process for calibrating the diodes for deviation from square law. Measurement results are presented showing the accuracy and precision of tbe six-port network analyzer when measuring 1-port and 2-port devices. Key work attenuation measurements, automated network analyzer, impedance measurements, microwave network analyzer, network analyzer, and six-port.
