Network analyzers are a key measurement technology for the RF and microwave industry. About fifty years ago the first network analyzer products started to be introduced and have had a significant influence on the design and testing of passive and active components. This paper traces the development of these network analyzers during the past fifty years discussing the technology used in their design and measurement contributions. The first network analyzers were focused on transmission and… CONTINUE READING
