Using Coaxial Adapters to Protect Your ECal Connectors

Electronic calibration is the fastest and most reliable way to calibrate your network analyzer, but one  needs an ECal to do it. An ECal is an expensive device, so it's important to take special care not to damage the connectors during routine use. In Episode 7 of Mini-Circuits WaveSpace video series, they explain how one can use coaxial adapters to protect ECal from wear and tear and how to extend the reference plane in calibration from the ECal ports to the adapters.
