A powerful new verification technique determines the measurement accuracy of scattering parameter calibrations. The technique determines the relative reference impedance, reference plane offset, and the worst-case measurement deviations of any calibration from a benchmark calibration. The technique is applied to several popular on-wafer scattering parameter calibrations, and the deviations between those calibrations and the thru-reflect line calibration are quantified.
