Fixed Flush and Fixed Offset Shorts

General Information

Fixed flush and fixed offset short circuit terminations (shorts) are used to establish reference planes in transmission systems and as key elements in the calibration of vector network analyzers (VNAs). Offset shorts can be used for banded calibrations of VNA. Those with the longest offset are often used to evaluate the calibration effectiveness of a VNA by measuring the effective source match after calibration.

In general, the shorting plane of fixed flush shorts is at the connector reference plane, and at some predetermined offset in offset shorts.

Many of the shorts listed in this section are components of the Maury VNA calibration kits described on pages 16-39 of this catalog. Others are available as supplements to the components in these kits. In all cases, the specification “Phase Accuracy” is defined in this section as phase deviation from a nominal unit.
