A novel approach is presented for a measurement system that is able to investigate the behavior of microwave circuits and components under pulsed conditions. This technique is integrated into a vector network analyzer to measure not only power levels but also scattering parameters of short pulses. In comparison to other systems, it does not need periodical pulses and does not require complicated and expensive hardware to chop the signals for subsequent pulse reconstruction.
