In recent years, BNC type devices such as attenuator and termination are used for high frequency measurements. Unfortunately, there is no any primary standard to obtain traceability for BNC type devices. It is proposed type N to BNC adapter characterization approach to obtain traceability for BNC type calibration standards, opens, shorts and matched loads used for calibration of BNC type devices. Electrical delay is calculated to characterize adapter then it is used for measurement of BNC type calibration standards. To validate proposed approach, known type N standards are measured and compared with actual results. Obtained results show good agreement. Difference between measured and actual phase for type N opens and shorts is lower than 8° up to 10 GHz.
