CST – Computer Simulation Technology

CST STUDIO SUITE - VNA Measurement Training

This training will cover VNA measurement for the experimental verification of 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.
