De-embedding using negation elements

New for June 2021

Often in Microwave engineering, you obtain data on a device that is embedded in a network that you cannot take apart. The process of mathmetically removing the network is called de-embedding.

The pices of the fixture are measured or calulated somehow (which is a subuect for another day)

Removing the effects of teh fixture is done using ABCD matrices, which are way easier to manipulate than S--parameters.  But if you don't enjoy that math or have time for it, you can use Microwave Office to remove the error boxes using the "negation element"
