### S21 phase vs phase shift measure

Hi am simulating in ADS microstrip T-lines for a 3 bit phase shifter, the lines are calculated to insert 55,110 and 220 phase shift for 2.16Ghz. With the S-Parameter simulation i can see the phase of ...

### Measure antenna S11 next to another source

I have a dipole antenna designed to work on ~800MHz and 2.44GHz frequency, and a miniVNA Tiny USB device that I can use to measure return loss of the antenna. I connect the antenna directly to the DUT ...

### Unitary property of scattering matrix

From s-parameter lossless network definition , The sum of the incident powers at all ports is equal to the sum of the reflected powers at all ports. But how do we derive the above unitary property ...

### S parameter files in ADS Keysight

I have two different .s2p files of a diode, one for when it is on (5V and 1mA) and one for when it is off (0V). I can create a model of a diode for each of these two occasions, but I can't have them ...

### Can I get the S21 parameter from a one-port open, short and load reading?

I am currently working with a custom rectangular waveguide, which has one port abled to connect to a VNA,(call it port a) but the other side cannot, (its part of a bigger system but for now its only ...

### Can a Unilateral Amplifier be Unstable?

When designing microwave amplifiers, stability is an important factor to consider. Stability is usually measured with the K factor. In a unilateral network, S_12 = 0, and this makes the K factor ...

### Can I determine 2-port s-parameters from 1-port measurements?

I have a 1-port impedance bridge. Can I get the four s-parameters of a 2-port device by measuring each "sending" port with the "receiving" port terminated in Z0 and reversing the measurement to get ...

### s-parameter matrix analysis

So I'm trying to figure out how I can analyze S-parameter matrices. The i. should be pretty straightforward, though I'm not 100% sure if I am correct with what it means. I'm assuming that there's ...
