This paper describes tests of the calibration-comparison method as an approach to assessing the measurement accuracy of large-signal network analyzer calibrations. We show that having one trusted reference calibration allows the calibration accuracy of the user’s working calibration to be assessed, and its performance under a variety of conditions to be inferred. We also demonstrate that the calibration-comparison approach provides additional information that simplifies the identification of sources of error in the user’s working calibration.
