Lossy TRL Standards

Question asked by ecrean on Dec 15, 2009
Hi,

In reading app note 8510-8A, it seems to indicate in Table 1 that the attenuation of the non-zero length thru need not
be known.   For a thru and a line with a loss of 0.3 dB at 1 GHz, how can the cal ignore this loss and still be valid?  Is the
Calibration more accurate if the offset loss, 10.7 G/s, is entered in the cal-kit?
