PNA-X Noise - Scalar vs Vector calibration

Question asked by LeonardHayden on Jul 30, 2015

In a PNA-X scalar noise calibration, are the noise parameters of the port-referred noise receiver determined? I.e., will the noise corrections account for the DUT output impedance influence on the noise contribution of the PNA-X noise receiver? Is there a difference in this regard between vector and scalar noise calibration?

My hope is that the DUT output impedance is used in deembedding the PNA-X noise figure even after scalar calibration. I need to not do the vector corrected DUT measurement and I don't see a way to disable the vector DUT measurement after a vector calibration.

Thanks!
