UnknownThru
(measured, ideals, *args, **kwargs)[source]¶ TwoPort SelfCalibration allowing the thru standard to be unknown.
This algorithm was originally developed in [1], and is based on the 8term error model (
EightTerm
). It allows the thru to be unknown, other than it must be reciprocal. This is useful when when a wellknown thru is not realizable.References
