Calibration using Anritsu "tee" #calibration #solt

robertinzano@...
 

I have access to an Anritsu VNA at my job, and with it we have the calibration "tee" which has open, short and load using N connectors. Would I make more accurate measurements using this for calibration or do the standards that come with the NanoVNA work well enough? Also, will using this for S-O-L but using the through that came with it have any adverse effect? Should I use an "N" through or will that make no difference?

Thanks for any help! I'm a decent tech but am definitely not anything close to an RF engineer lol!

Hi Jos
I think you might ask DiSlord if the SD card driver supports SDHC type cards or the older type.

Re: NanoVNA bricked

Dr.Heblik@...
 

Hi folks,

I got a bricked VNA (white screen) from a very frustrated OM (very cheap: a glass of beer only, hi).
- First: I tried the "DfuSe"-way - no success - as expected.
- Second: I used the "STM32CubeProgrammer" and shortened Pin "VCC" with Pin "Boot0" to reach the programming mode. Using the concerning "nnn.hex" File - IT WORKS !
- Third: I tried the method which is decribed above with the ST-Link - IT WORKS also !
So nobody need a "sacrificial" device in his stock - I think. Give it away (for much more than one glass of beer only.., hi)
(I use WIN10 prof.)

Peter , DD6USB

P.S.
It was worth a glass of beer I think.......


Re: NanoVNA #calibration

Dave W6OQ
 

What I see in the plot that you posted is a filter that is about 170 kHz wide at the -3 dB points and centered at 10.715 MHz. This is consistent with a Murata SFELF10M7HA00-B0 that has a spec of 180 +/-40 kHz and a center frequency of 10.7 MHz +/-30 kHz. The fact that all the filters exhibit the same response wouldn't surprise me if you purchased them at the same time, they probably came from the same batch, and the tolerance is likely based on batch to batch differences caused by process variations rather than random variations within a batch.

It is a little harder to understand/explain the fact that the low frequency side runs out of dynamic range at -60 dB and the high side gets there at 5 dB higher at -55 dB. Since these filters are symmetrical, have you tried swapping the input and output by turning the filter around at the fixture?

Also, you haven't really detailed your circuit for matching the 50 ohm of the VNA to the 330 ohm of the filter. If I were doing it, I would use a minimum loss matching pad. This would consist of a 54.281014769949586 ohm resistor (it is the value that the calculator gave - LOL) across the input and output coax to the VNA and a series resistor of 304.01167774007837 ohms up to the filter input/output. This would give a loss of 13.867585162369918 dB on each side. 5% values: 56 and 300. 1% values: 54.9 and 301. I am sure the 5% values would be just fine. You could bridge the filter location with a short on your test fixture to determine the exact loss through the pads, then place the filter in the fixture and easily find the filter insertion loss.

Re: NanoVNA #calibration

Larry Rothman
 

Radu,
Please note there is a big difference between upper case C and lower case c as an indication of calibration. 
Refer to the User Guide in the Forum files section. I emphasized this in the section on calibration. 
If you see c0 instead of C0 then the unit is NOT calibrated. (The number can be 0 thru 4)
Remember to always press the Reset menu button before calibration and then Save to one of the memories ( 0 is the power-on recall default memory).

Hello,

You still need to compile it, but I have attached a nanovna-SAVER release that its compatible with the V2 and H4, with the addition of a small form
where one can add "attenuation" threshold to S21, courtesy from user @gaionim .

I measured the CW frequency error during "my" NanoVNA warm-up.

Without the DiSlord's installed FW, the actual error would be shifted higher !

May be not a TCXO but XO as i wrote in a past message.

Error during assembly ? Cost reason ? They are just assumptions.

PS As i don't have a temperature sensor to measure the internal

NanoVNA large font feature request.

Chris Keladis
 

Was just reading about Reald's "big font overlay" feature from his
firmware, looks something like this:

This is great to have as a standard feature in all firmwares. Would also be
useful on 4" displays as well.

I know Hugen and others are on the list so just wanted to submit this as a
feature request ::)




Thanks,

Chris.


Re: NanoVNA #calibration

Please remember that if even if you've saved your new calibration to c1, if you power cycle the Nano, it automatically recalls c0 and you need to manually recall c1 every time you turn the unit ON

On top of that, many Nano units will power cycle when connected to USB power.

which I'm recalling (and I see on the left side of the screen, on top)
before running measurements. I calibrated for a CENTER of 10.7MHz, and a
SPAN of 1.4MHz. This was done with the cables in place, including the patch
extension (per guidelines), but my little kit that allows me to socket the
filters was not connected during calibration (I came to wonder if I should
do that).

To continue establishing the baseline of my setup, the kit has proper
termination for the filters (~330ohm) and cables (~50ohm), and also a 10pF
cap on the filters output (per Murata datasheet).

Hi all,
Having some confidence I've completed calibration on the band of interest
to me (I think I did 10MHz to 11MHz), I am getting the same titled scan of
pretty much any number of filters I threw at this (I enclose a sample). I
am not sure if I need to return this, or request a replacement some other
way.
I contacted the seller (R&L), but it doesn't look like they have stock at
all and they haven't had any in a while.

Thank you all for you input.

I think I figured it, a bit trial and error and such. The idea seems to
be
to turn off two traces out of four and make sure the two left follow
certain inputs (LOGMAG for each CH). Past this step, it's a bit weird how
the calibration menu steps one ahead on you, making it a bit confusing as
to whether it completed the previous step or not. But it seems the traces
settle in a way that tells me the device read "itself" and calibrated
accordingly.

I'm repeating the procedure, as my 10.7MHz filters plots still lean lower
on the left side. This is across multiple filters, can't be due to them,
still think it's the device.

I'm at the start of the calibration procedure, and I've connected both
cables on CH0 and CH1, while using the pass-through attachment ("F-F
SMA"
in the v1.1 guidelines, in my interpretation) on the other end of the
SMA
cable coming from CH0.

The menu steps are clear until step 4, which calls for a "4. SINGLE."
I'm
not sure what this is. I don't see it anywhere following/around TRACE 0
(which is there). I wonder if this is due to recent changes in the menu
structure. Or maybe I am just missing something...

Thank you all for your help.
Radu.

Thank you all.

Firstly - on the attachments. Paul: I guess by elimination works
great!
;)
In fact, makes complete sense and thank you.

Secondly - on the filters. Jim: yes, I am terminating the measuring
rig
properly by impedance matching (closest possible to 330ohm to filters
and
50ohm to the NanoVNA). Even after eliminating unnecessary
complications (50ohm BNC cables, SMA adapters, etc.), the filters
response
is still screwy (though much improved), and this is across multiple
filters. I assume next step on this pursuit is to recalibrate. I
assume
this is probably about as good as factory calibration, so there's not
much
to loose there.

Thirdly - on the manuals/files: Thank you for that repository, I
wasn't
aware of it!

Radu.

If the filters are not properly impedance matched, they will not be
symmetrical.  In fact, the passband may be horribly distorted
compared
to
what you expect.  Further, the group delay of the filter will be
screwy,
which is important to those going for minimum distortion in their
FM
receivers.
