Jun 15-16 Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty – Detroit/Livonia, MI

The course is suitable for all personnel of both calibration and testing laboratories. Every effort is made to eliminate unnecessary complications, to apply The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) at its simplest level and to take away the mystery associated with measurement uncertainty. Participants who have never developed uncertainty budgets usually develop the required skills to understand and modify existing budgets, as well as to develop basic budgets from scratch. Others who seek explanations of GUM complexities obtain clarifications expressed in simple terms. Measurement uncertainty problems are solved by brainstorming methods so as to generate interaction by all participants.

Jun 9-11 VNA Tools II Course – Morgan Hill, CA

RF & Microwave Metrology

VNA Tools II is free and supports most of the Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) in today’s market. The software simplifies your tasks of generating accurate measurement uncertainty and vindicating metrological traceability. The software is ideal for flexible and modular external VNA calibration, error correction algorithms, device control, graphical capabilities, and a project-based data analysis. Its speed and performance will optimize the measurement un-certainty computation and propagation through a measurement model in compliance with the ISO-GUM. The software is available for download at www.metas.ch/vnatools. The three day course provides a practical and hands-on lesson with this superior and versatile software.
