The Theoretical Principles of the Construction of Two-Signal Microwave Circuit Analyzers

  • S. V. Savel’kaev


The principle of the construction of a two-signal microwave-circuit analyzer is proposed. Using a mathematical model of the analyzer, methods are developed for its amplitude and phase adaptation as well as a method of calibration, which ensure high accuracy in measuring the reflection parameters over wide dynamic and frequency ranges, together with the possibility of correcting the measurement errors in real time based on multiple measurements.

Key words
