CW mode - ask for explanation

Post by piotrkf » Sat Sep 14, 2019 8:41 am

I can't find in manual explanation what does sweep frequency CW mode means. What is the difference in device operation between CW box checked and unchecked ?

Hi

If the box is checked then the VNA will output in CW(carrier wave) mode where it will output at a single frequency, the set start frequency), for the entire sweep so that you can observe changes in the S-parameter with time or vary the power output and see how the S-parameter varies with power.
