Proper termination of user connections leads from the DUT to the 16048G ext.

Question asked by micbay on Apr 29, 2019

I'm trying to figure out how to properly build connection leads from our DUT to the E4990A via a 16048 extension cable. I'm assuming conceptually, connecting to the 16048G is essentially the same as connecting directly to the output terminals of the analyzer once the appropriate compensation is selected in the analyzer. The ext. compensation setup aside, does the final user connection from the extension ports to the DUT require a certain type of wiring or termination configuration? Our device under test is a whole system and will be connected with header pin-socket or mini-grabber interface . What is the proper way to build the connections from the DUT to the 16048G extension? Do connections to the ext. ports need to be terminated with 50ohm adapters or other matched impedance value?

We are doing dielectric material analysis and interested in response across the full range of 50Hz to 120MHz. We expect the impedance range to be from around 50ohm to several kOhms.
