PicoVNA 106 accessories

6 GHz Vector network analyzer

Standard 6 GHz SOLT calibration kit (SMA female)

Calibration standards have particular significance to the overall performance of a VNA, so we recommend that you select your accessories carefully. Standards are often the weakest links in a VNA measurement, generally contributing significantly to measurement uncertainty despite their high cost. At the lowest levels of uncertainty, costs can be significant and measurements can be compromised by seemingly quite minor damage or wear. For these reasons, many customers hold both premium-grade items for calibration, reference or measurement standards, and standard-grade items as working or transfer standards. 

Pico Technology also offers two grades of 50 Ω short, open, load and thru (SOLT), 4-piece, 5-port calibration kits in both male and female genders. All kits have high-performance tight tolerance stainless steel interface connectors. Kits are supplied as an assembled five-port “Ұ” SOLT, either male or female.

They can be disassembled for individual usage, or for refurbishment should a calibration standard be damaged. Each SOLT is supplied with traceable calibration data linked to the kit serial number, and is supplied in a protective carry case.
