Title: Method and system for microwave mixer phase response measurement

Abstract

A system, method and apparatus for mixer phase response measurement comprises a vector network analyzer connectable to a device under test, an additional device connected to the analyzer the additional device configured to have an equal phase response to that of the device under test, a local oscillator connected to the device under test and the additional device, a series of switches connecting the device under test and the additional device to a vector voltmeter, and a reference generator connected to the vector voltmeter.
