Network Analyzer- Short Manual In the experiment “HP e5071 Network Analyzer”, standards, thru and cables are

used. Figure 1. shows names and functions of the front panel for a “4-port analyzer . In our experiments we will be using a “!-port "ersion of this analyzer.

Figure 1. #ames and functions of the front panel In the picture below you see the standard to be used in the calibration process. $here are letters “%, & and ' written for each of the outputs which stand for “open, short and load respecti"ely.
