    Abstract

    Virginia Diodes is developing a series of Vector Network Analyzer extenders to cover waveguide bands from WR-10 (75-110 GHz) up to WR-1.0 (750-1100 GHz). This article discusses the basic configuration of the VDI extenders, and shows examples of several systems. Several measurement examples are discussed, including the measurement of waveguide loss, interface mismatch, and loads. Initial measurements of a WR-1.2 (600-900 GHz) extender are presented, showing a typical dynamic range of 85 dB.
