Calibrating the PICO VNA for UF.L connectors - how?

Post by unithomas » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:05 am

Hello there,

we recently bought the PICO NVA to optimize our antennas. The calibration via the CalKit from PICO is quite self-explaining. We use the SMA f connector CalKit SOLT-STD-f.

We also have some projects with small UF.L connectors for antennas, where PCB space is rare and SMA jacks are too big. The question now is: How do we calibrate properly the PICO VNA for UF.L connectors? There is no UF.L CalKit, afaik. And it's of course no solution to connect an SMA->UF.L adapter and a UF.L cable after calibration to the SMA cable. So how do we proceed in this case being able to measure the S11 values of our UF.L connected antenna?

Thank you very much in advance and have a nice week!
Thomas

Thank you very much for responding. I wrote an email.

Maybe some users here also have the same use case? Any experience?

Thanks! :)
