IQSTAR provides corrected data at the DUT reference plane. The correction terms are calculated during the calibration process using a step-by-step wizard. Depending on the setup configuration, different calibrations can be performed.
For scalar setups, the calibration procedure is based on power measurements using power meters and signal generators. It is possible to calibrate the setup using two (2) or three (3) power meters to include the reflected power. A three power-meters setup permits to characterize the DUT with additional parameters like Operating Gain (Gp), delivered input power and power-added efficiency (PAE).
