RF & Microwave

RF power and scattering parameter or S-parameter are the quantity associated with microwave measurements where the services are offered by the laboratory to support national RF and microwave measurements activities. Measurement frequency capability starts from the range of 10 MHz up to 18 GHz. The measurements are limited to Type N and PC7 connectors. The estimated uncertainties for RF power and S-parameter are described as follows:

Parameters

Uncertainty (±)
RF power at 1 mW 2.0 % to 2.4 %
Reflection Coefficient 0.015
Attenuation 0.2 to 3.5 dB
