The accuracy of a multiport vector network analyzer, which uses a new calibration concept, has been compared with a 2-port network analyzer that implements the classical TRL procedure. The accuracy assessment is based on the analysis of the error propagation due to the connectors repeatability, both of the used standards and the measurands. The comparison, performed in the 2-18 GHz band on devices fitted with APC-7 mm connectors, proved the high accuracy reached by a multiport system which can qualify for metrological applications.
