H7215X-100 Uncertainty Analysis Basics

2   Days | Classroom Training | Where & When | Advantages of Keysight Training

Audience: Technicians, engineers and scientists who must use the 17025 standard to improve RF and Microwave measurements

Learn the principles in the computation of measurement uncertainty by first reviewing basic statistics and probability and then applying the GUM method.

Using the GUM method of contributing uncertainties, the user can learn how to properly calculate measurement uncertainty as it applies to RF and Microwave measurements.
