Apologies if this gets posted twice for same subject... operator error.


To get benefit of accuracy in 85052C TRL kit we want to use adapters to measure some Type N devices.
We are trying to follow the PNA help Characterize adapter macro to de-embed the adapters.

After the s2p file is created it help goes on to say
De-embed the adapter (S2P file) from subsequent S-parameter measurements

1. Perform a 2 port SOLT calibration without the adapter/fixture.

Our question does this allow a precision SOLT using the line standards? If not will we be reduced to the
results we would have obtained using a Type N SOLT cal kit?

Thanks,

Karl
