Ensure that you clearly understand the meanings of the symbols and take the necessary precautions before operating the equipment. Some or all of the following five symbols may or may not be used on all Anritsu equipment. In addition, there may be other labels attached to products that are not shown in the diagrams in this manual. This indicates a prohibited operation. The prohibited operation is indicated symbolically in or near the barred circle. This indicates a compulsory safety precaution. The required operation is indicated symbolically in or near the circle. This indicates a warning or caution. The contents are indicated symbolically in or near the triangle. This indicates a note. The contents are described in the box. These indicate that the marked part should be recycled. MS20xxC MM PN: 10580-00307 Rev. E Safety-1 For Safety Warning Always refer to the operation manual when working near locations at which the alert mark, shown on the left, is attached. If the operation, etc., is performed without heeding the advice in the operation manual, there is a risk of personal injury. In addition, the equipment performance may be reduced. Moreover, this alert mark is sometimes used with other marks and descriptions indicating other dangers. Warning When supplying power to this equipment, connect the accessory 3-pin power cord to a 3-pin grounded power outlet. If a grounded 3-pin outlet is not available, use a conversion adapter and ground the green wire, or connect the frame ground on the rear panel of the equipment to ground. If power is supplied without grounding the equipment, there is a risk of receiving a severe or fatal electric shock. This equipment can not be repaired by the operator. Do not attempt to

Warning Caution remove the equipment covers or to disassemble internal components. Only qualified service technicians with a knowledge of electrical fire and shock hazards should service this equipment. There are high-voltage parts in this equipment presenting a risk of severe injury or fatal electric shock to untrained personnel. In addition, there is a risk of damage to precision components. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage the highly sensitive circuits in the instrument. ESD is most likely to occur as test devices are being connected to, or disconnected from, the instrument’s front and rear panel ports and connectors. You can protect the instrument and test devices by wearing a static-discharge wristband. Alternatively, you can ground yourself to discharge any static charge by touching the outer chassis of the grounded instrument before touching the instrument’s front and rear panel ports and connectors. Avoid touching the test port center conductors unless you are properly grounded and have eliminated the possibility of static discharge. Repair of damage that is found to be caused by electrostatic discharge is not covered under warranty.

Warning This equipment is supplied with a rechargeable battery that could potentially leak hazardous compounds into the environment. These hazardous compounds present a risk of injury or loss due to exposure. Anritsu Company recommends removing the battery for long-term storage of the instrument and storing the battery in a leak-proof, plastic container. Follow the environmental storage requirements specified in the product data sheet. Safety-2 PN: 10580-00307 Rev.

E MS20xxC MM Vector Network Analyzer Performance Verification 2-4 S-Parameter Measurements Verification 2-4 S-Parameter Measurements Verification The following test verifies S-parameter measurement capabilities of the VNA Master, calibration tees, test port cable, and any required adapters as a system by analyzing the measurement of artifacts that are traceable to national standards laboratories. The procedures are automated by selecting the S-parameter Measurement Verification Test in the VNA Master Verification software, which is supplied with each SC7858 or SC7859 Verification Kit. The VNA Master Verification software guides you to perform a full 12 Term calibration on the VNA Master by using the appropriate calibration tees, to measure the S-parameters of the impedance transfer standards in the verification kit, and to verify that the measured values are within the specified measurement uncertainty limits. The impedance transfer standards that are contained in the verification kit are: • 20 dB Attenuation Standard • 50 dB Attenuation Standard • 50 ohm Air Line Standard • 25 ohm Mismatch (Beatty) Standard The devices in the verification kit are selected based on their ability to stress the envelope of possible measurement parameters while still providing a very stable and repeatable behavior. The key attribute of the devices is that of long term stability. Pass/Fail status of the measurements is displayed on the computer. The software can also provide hardcopy (printout) of the test reports which include the measured data, the measurement uncertainties, and the Pass/Fail status. Verification Result Determination The software verification process compares the measured S-parameter data of the impedance transfer standards against the original standard (characterization) data for those devices that was obtained using the Factory Standard VNA Master (at Anritsu). The Factory Standard VNA Master is traceable to NIST through the impedance standards of the Anritsu calibration laboratory. These standards are traceable to NIST through precision mechanical measurements, NIST-approved microwave theory impedance derivation methods, and electrical impedance comparison measurements. At each frequency point, the verification measurement is compared to the characterization measurement in the context of the uncertainties. If the delta between the two measurements is consistent with the uncertainty window, the measurement is considered acceptable at that point. The metric of comparison, termed En, is a check to see if the measurement differences are consistent with the uncertainty windows of both the characterization and the verification measurements. The quantity is shown in the formula below: EnXxychar Xxyver – = ------------------------------------------------------------ Uxychar ( )2Uxyver ( )2 + where: • The numerator contains the magnitude or phase of S-parameters measured during characterization (by Anritsu) and during verification (by the user). • The denominator contains the respective uncertainties. These uncertainties are calculated based on the VNA Master, the calibration standards, and repeatability. If this quantity En is less than 1, then the measurements during the two phases are within the overlap of the uncertainties and one can consider the measurements “equivalent” and, in some sense, verified.
