Impact of Phase Calibration on EVM Measurement Quality



Diogo Ribeiro, Dylan Williams, Richard Chamberlin, Nuno B. Carvalho


In this paper, the calibrated measurement of wideband modulated signals by mixer-based large-signal network analyzers (LSNAs) will be evaluated, with a focus on the impact of the phase calibration in the measured error vector magnitude (EVM). The uncertainties of the EVMRMS results will also be analyzed.
