Measurement of Noncoaxial Multiport Devices Up to the Intrinsic Ports

Even in light of all the multiport vector network analyzers (VNAs) that appear to be on the market at present, the measurement of noncoaxial multiport devices remains a critical challenge due to the lack of a multiport counterpart of the two-port thru-reflect-line (TRL) calibration. Accordingly, based on the concept of virtual auxiliary termination and the… (More)
