Automatic Fixture Removal Plug-in Method Selection

Jan. 6, 2022
The Automatic Fixture Removal plug-in can eliminate fixture effects from VNA measurements, thus providing superb accuracy. VNA users can simplify measurements of small components, like SMD sized components, utilizing this software plug-in.

Automatic Fixture Removal (AFR) plug-in serves to simplify a device under test (DUT) measurement process based on a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) when direct access to DUT is not possible. A principal challenge in these cases is correct elimination of fixture effects. CMT AFR plug-in offers three different types of correction methods, covering different fixture properties.
