RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Deembedding and reflection coefficient - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

am trying to deembed measurements from TDR and i don't see why i can't
get the results i want.
I explain my problem:
I have measured
through a VNA the reflection coefficients of 3 standards (S0L), and
3 other components. I made a TDR measurement of those components and
From the TDR of the standardsi apply a fft and thanks
to the current and voltage i get the measured reflection coefficient
Knowing their true reflection coefficients thanks to the VNA, i compute
the error vectors:
problem is that when i use those vectors with TDR of the standards i
find back the good s-parameters of the standards, but when i do this
with other components i don't find at all.
Note : the time span and step, and frequency span and step permits
to work one with each other.
Can someone help me ? Thank you
