Scalar Mixer Calibration with a 2-port VNA
This demo is done using the soon to be released S5243 2-port 43 GHz Compact VNA. Frequency offset measurement capability is standard on all Copper Mountain Technologies two and four-port VNAs. This allows an engineer to measure the return loss and conversion loss of a mixer. The auxiliary source available on all four-port models can be used to drive the LO port making this measurement very easy to set up.
