Extended NVNA Bandwidth for Long-Term Memory Measurements



Catherine A. Remley, Dominique Schreurs, Dylan F. Williams, John Wood


We present a new technique for measuring the magnitude and phase of intermodulation products outside the measurement bandwidth of our instrumentation. We apply the technique to measurements of long-term memory effects, and realte our measurements to frequency-dependent physical characteristics in the circuitry.
