Often the absolute delay is not a concern, but dispersion can significantly change a pulse shape through increased rise-time and the ringing of a step response. For this case, adding a vector voltmeter to our previously scalar measurement system would work, but the more general answer is to use a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) with two or more port signal switching, directional couplers (or bridges), wide dynamic range receivers, and “calibration” software. These features allow a VNA to clearly define the measurement reference planes and computationally remove the fixture behavior from the measurement.

The conductivity and frequency-dependent dimension of the electromagnetic penetration of current distribution in a metal, becomes smaller than the cross-sectional dimensions of the interconnection. For the lower range of frequencies where the skin-depth exceeds the conductor dimensions, the series resistance and commensurate attenuation are essentially constant as the entire cross-sectional area carries current. At increasing frequencies, the depth of penetration effectively limits the cross-sectional conductor area carrying current, resulting in series resistance that is proportional to the square root of the frequency.
