Impedance of Transfer Standards used in the Calibration of High-Speed Samplers and Pulse Generators

Abstract

The impedance of the calibration artifact or transfer standard (pulse generator or sampler) is often ignored in high-speed pulse metrology. Using an air line as an integral part of the transfer standard for providing a known impedance for calibration of other instruments is described. The utility of this method is compared to that of using a transfer standard for which its impedance is determined by some other instrument.
