Our calibration kits utilize three impedance standards and one transmission standard. This assists to fully impact a two port calibration. Our precision cal kits are compatible with Vector Network Analyzer systems.
SOLT & SSL Style Calibration Kit
Normally, we use the standard of Short, Open, Load and Through connection. This is otherwise known as a “SOLT” Calibration Kit.
Calibration kits utilize Offset Short-Circuit sections. The length of the offsets are set as λ/8 and 3λ/8 long. This design provides a balanced phase response over the operating frequency range. We supply precision sliding loads to provide optimum performance over the complete waveguide band. Since flanges mate together, a special through connection is not required. This results in the Short Short Load (SSL) Style Waveguide Calibration Kit.
For extreme accuracy, Mega provides precision Coaxial to Waveguide Transitions. Coax transitions typically display a VSWR of better than 1.15:1 over the complete waveguide band. This provides for better accuracy when measuring low insertion loss devices.
TRL Calibration Kit
The Thru Reflect Line (TRL) two port calibration kit utilizes 3 standards to define the calibrated reference plane. Precision waveguide to coaxial transitions are used in conjunction with a “flush” short circuit plate. A precision λ/4 waveguide section is designed to provide a balanced phase response over the operating frequency range.
