    This historical overview examines the block diagrams of several millimeter-wave network analyzers. Included are extenders to manual HP 8410 systems, early six-port systems, and several modifications to HP 8542 and 8409 automatic systems. A proposed block diagram for 26.5 - 40 GHz, 33 - 50 GHz, and 40 - 60 GHz operation with a controller-based HP 8510 analyzer is included. View full abstract»

    Traditional vector network analyzers, measuring magnitude and phase of network characteristics as a function of frequency, have proven invaluable in design, testing, and metrology applications. The ability to now evaluate network responses as a function of time following application of a step or impulse stimulus provides substantial important data for network analysis. This paper describes time-do... View full abstract»

    Verification standards are required to determine the accuracy of Vector Automatic Network Analyzer (VANA) measurements. This paper deals with "two-port" verification standards which are basically beadless air dielectric transmission lines which can be made to provide a wide range of accurately known S-parameters. Standards in 3.5mm and 7mm configurations will be discussed as well as the criticalne... View full abstract»

    A relished goal of broadband instrumentation is to have a single RF connector interface. Moving over the 30 GHz work to penetrate the millimeter range was accomplished using the 2.92 millimeter connector geometry. The resulting K Connector proved to be more rugged and reliable than the ubiquitous SMA. A full range of components to complete a full range automated scalar network analyzer is describe...
