Why TRL Is the Recommended VNA Calibration for Load Pull (.PDF Download)

April 21, 2015

I can’t recall how many times I’ve been asked the simple question, do we really need TRL to characterize tuners or can we get by with SOLT? My answer, and that of my colleagues, has always been that TRL is the more accurate method with regards to highly reflective devices like tuners, but there has never been...
