S-Parameters Galashiels Orkney Select power and internal attenuators levels - Output power: -10 dBm - Gain: 26 dB - External attenuation: 6 dB - Internal attenuation: 15 dB - Measured S21 drops by the attenuation - After calibration, attenuator losses will be removed - Before calibration: Gain = 5 dB - After calibration: Gain = 26 dB - Internal attenuation still not available
  11. 11. 3. S-Parameters Galashiels Orkney Calibration performance (for all types of PA measurements)  Source–power calibration at the input point of the amplifier  To ensure a constant and known power  Material needed: power sensor  Two-port SOLT calibration  To remove effects of the external and internal attenuators  Material needed: mechanical calibration kit  SOLT: short-open-load-through
