Radio Frequency (RF)
has suitable use in telecommunication due to its wide range of frequency range. RF is electromagnetic radiation ranging from 30 Hz to 300 GHz. Various types of RF testing equipment are RF analyzers, RF filters, RF amplifiers and so on. There are many network analyzers based on this technology. Vector network analyzers are used to determine S-parameters of a myriad of passive components which includes cables, filters, switches, diplexers, duplexers, triplexers, couplers, bridges, attenuators, antennas, and many more. S-parameters provide broad understanding into the linear behavior of RF and microwave components. These are also used for characterization of the dielectric properties of any materials. The global market for RF testing equipment was estimated to be $4.94 billion in 2015 and is projected to escalate to $6.54 billion by 2021.The RF testing equipment market
