Measurements of characteristic impedance of high frequency cables with time domain reflectometry (TDR)


A new methodology for measuring the cable characteristic impedance (Zo) is presented. The approach employs a least square fit to extract accurate and repeatable Zo values from the TDR measurements. The RLGC circuit modeling explores various cable losses and shows that the proposed approach agrees with the transmission line theory. A frequency domain plot of… (More)
