The ENA (i.e. E507xB) adapter characterization VBA macro will probably NOT be implemented on the ENA-L (i.e. E506xA). This VBA macro utilizes the fixture simulator functionality of the ENA, and this feature is not available on the ENA-L. The ENA's fixture simulator feature is implemented in firmware, which will NOT run on the ENA-L. Other customers have asked for adapter characterization to be added to the ENA-L feature set and the product planners are aware of this request.
More Background Information:
The adapter characterization calibration function creates an S2p file that represents the characteristic of an adapter, combines that file with the calibration data obtained (before the adapter is connected) and the S2p file, and then saves the combined calibration data in the user cal kit 10. This way, the adapter information becomes part of the new calibration data. The problem here is that the VBA macro program uses the de-embedding and port impedance conversion functions, which are part of the fixture simulator feature (not available on ENA-L), in order to calculate the S2p file. Once the calibration data is saved in the user cal kit, the fixture simulator functionality is not used. If one runs the VBA program on the ENA-L the program shows an error, because it canâ€™t access the required fixture simulator functions.
