SMA calibration and verification kit with reverse SMA adapters (model 85033, 7 GHz option 001)

SMA calibration kit reverse SMA reverse SMA

Introduction

The standard Kirkby Microwave 85033 7 GHz SMA calibration and verification kit is used to calibrate a vector network analyzer to measure standard SMA devices.

This option 001 kit is identical to the standard kit, but also include two reverse polarity SMA adapters. The approximate electrical length of these will be measured prior to dispatch, and this data put onto the USB stick. If phase measurements are being made, the effect of the electrical length can be removed by enabling "Port Extensions" on the network analyzer. If only VSWR/return loss measurements are being made, then the phase delay of the adapters is irrelevant.

Notes:

The complete contents of the option 001 kit are:

  1. Female SMA short
  2. Female SMA open
  3. Female SMA load
  4. Male SMA short
  5. Male SMA open
  6. Male SMA load
  7. Male-Male SMA thru
  8. Female-Female SMA thru
  9. Male SMA to reverse-polarity female SMA adapter (only in this option 001 kit and the option 003 kit)
  10. Female SMA to reverse-polarity male SMA adapter (only in this option 001 kit and the option 003 kit)
  11. Attenuator for verification purposes
  12. A floppy disk suitable for use with the HP/Agilent 8753ES VNA to load the calibration kit definitions.
  13. 16 GB USB stick with measured data on the attenuator, and the electrical delay of the adapters. The data on the attenuators is supplies as both easy to see PDF files, as well as .s2p Touchstone files. The electrical one-way electrical delay of the adapters is written as text. The USB stick also includes a number of application notes and manuals specific to vector network analyzers.
