Abstract:

This thesis describes improvements made to an existing Millimeter-Wave Scalar Network Analyzer. The system is automated and can be used to make return andor insertion loss measurements from 60 to 90 GHz. Measurement data can be printed or plotted on a thermal printer. Additionally, a high resolution plot with up to 4 colors can be made on an external plotter. Other topics which are discussed includes software modification, improved performance in measurement taking, dynamic range of the system, component influence on measurements and comparison of device measurements with those obtained from previous theses and manufacturer specifications. Keywords include Measurement Techniques, Millimeter-Wave, Scalar Network Analyzer, Automated Scalar Network Analyzer.
