SVA1032X Cal Kit
« on: December 26, 2020, 06:12:59 pm »
What are the correct parameters for the User1 and User2 cal kit parameters?

For example from VNA User1:

Define Open
Parameter 0 C0*1e-15F
Parameter 1 C1*1e-27F/HZ
Parameter 2 C1*1e-36F/HZ^2
Parameter 3 C1*1e-45F/HZ^3
Parameter 4 Delay


From type N Cal kit parameters: See image below.
Parameter 0 C0  50
Parameter 1 C1 3013.39
Parameter 2 C2 12757.35
Parameter 3 C3 -2819.75
Parameter 4 Delay 74.0853

Does the VNA expect that the entered value for Parameter 2 (C2) be 12757.35 or C2/C1 which is 1257.35/3013.39 or 4.2328? I could just do a cal with both values and see what makes sense but thought I would ask first??

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

Best & Happy Holidays,

The labels on the VNA are incorrect, the C1 should not have been repeated three times.
I reported this a while ago, so it might have been missed.

So I think your parameter numbers are correct. Enter the values directly.

I tried using the ratioed numbers and couldn't get past the Open Cal, so suspected these were not the proper format. C0,1,2,3 from the kit went thru the calibration fine and are giving reasonable results.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Regarding putting in my calkit parameters i have also a question:

Got my SDR Kits Rosenberger "Calkit" i know it's a generic one but original ones are to expensive for "Hobby use" :-(
And i think they are decent enough for my useage (hopefully)..

Now my problem is, how can i get the Calkit Parametes inside my SVA1032x? I saw user calkit buttons but the Parameters were unclear for me.
Or should i telnet in and refine / manipulate one of the saved "original" Calkits with my parameters?

Here are the calkit parameters:
https://www.sdr-kits.net/documents/Rosenberger_Female_Cal_Standards_rev5.pdf

Can somebody elp me to verify which parameter inside the pdf is the correct parameter for the SVA user calkit (C1,C2,C3...)?
