CST – Computer Simulation Technology


Vector Network Analyzer - Measurement Training

Develop your skills with VNA measurement for the experimental verification of the simulation results from CST STUDIO SUITE®.

The course will focus on a practical application of VNA calibration techniques for on-board and coaxial line measurement of S-parameters. The training course consists of 2 full days including theoretical and hands-on parts. The measured data will be consequently used for an extraction of substrate complex permittivity and evaluation of hybrid model of SMD component. The challenges of the proper comparison between the simulation and measurement results will be discussed in the end.

Depending on the language preferences of the registrants, this workshop may be held in English or Czech.
