World’s Easiest-to-Use SolutionTDR/TDT calibration dramatically enhances measurement accuracy by removing systematic imperfections in the instrumentation as well as the impact of adapters, cables and fixtures used to connect to the DUT. The DCA-TDR solution achieves a significant breakthrough for accuracy and ease-of-use with its support for electronic calibration (ECal) modules, leveraging an advanced calibration technique originally developed for vector network analyzers and recognized as the “gold standard” in S-parameter measurements. A special Agilent N4694A DC 67-GHz ECal module was developed for the DCA-TDR to let users calibrate and de-skew channels and TDR modules quickly. The result is a fully integrated TDR/TDT/S-parameter measurement system that provides calibrated results on up to 16 channels in real-time.
