Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the current status of automated multipart network analyzer (ANA) systems as used in the measurement of microwave parameters such as reflection coefficient, generalized scattering (S) parameters, and power. Multipart (typically at least a six-port) network analyzers have particular advantages at millimeter-wave frequencies because they do not require complex detection circuitry at the reflectometer sidearms. This also eliminates the need for the frequency down conversion usually required in most commercially available analyzers based on the four-port reflectometer.
