NVNA Users’ Forum: Mission and Overview



Catherine A. Remley, Dominique Schreurs, Wendy Van Moer


This paper introduces the NVNA Users' Forum, an informal discussion group devoted to sharing information and issues related to instrumentation utilized in vector large-signal network analysis of microwave circuits and systems that contain nonlinear elements. The Forum was initiated by the Automatic RF Techniques Group (ARFTG) in 2002 [1], and is now organized for the first time in Europe as a Focused Session of the European Microwave Week. We will outline the typical agenda of this Forum, and illustrate this with some highlights of past meetings.
