(measured, ideals, switch_terms=None, *args, **kwargs)[source]¶ General SixteenTerm (aka Errorbox) Twoport calibration
16term error model is a complete error model that can solve for leakages between the different VNA receivers.
There are several different combinations of calibration standards that can be used. At least five two port measurements are needed. Using through, open, short, and load standards some combinations result in singular matrix. See [1] for list of nonsingular combinations.
