In this paper, a thorough evaluation of calibration residual uncertainty of on-wafer load-pull systems at millimeter-wave frequencies, with actual comparisons between real-time and non-real-time load-pull systems, is reported for the first time. Two figures of merit for uncertainty evaluation are taken into account, showing the differences between the two methodologies. In the case of non-real-time systems, based on a simulation tool developed for the purpose, typical values of uncertainties to… CONTINUE READING
