Rohde and Schwarz is offering a free one day fundamentals training course on the practical use and understanding of vector network analysers.

The course is designed for engineers who are new to the field of network analysis or who need to refresh their skills in order to increase efficiency in day to day work. Attendees will learn about the features available from a modern network analyser platform.

It will cover the basics of connector systems, S-Parameter measurements and the need for user calibration in practical network analyser measurements and the use of time domain to understand test fixtures in greater detail. It explores the topic of measurement uncertainties, verifications kits and use of the R&S VNAMUC uncertainty calculation tool to gain further insight into measurement accuracies.

Finally, the course will touch on some modern applications of network analysers, including absolute power measurements of amplifiers.

Each section will feature a presentation explaining the topic and an accompanying live practical demonstration.
