The Communications Technology Laboratories (CTL) dependence on dated bandlimited coaxial and rectangular-waveguide calibration services complicates the traceability chain for a growing and frustrated customer base whose products are largely on-chip. These components are rapidly evolving and now require ever-increasing bandwidths to characterize. To embrace these changes, this project will develop a shared calibration service, where NIST and the customer share broadband integrated-circuit calibration artifacts, protocols, software, and data through an integrated web-portal. A successful applicant will have extensive skills in data informatics and programming. Some of the programming skills required include web-based markup languages, experience with SQL databases, and proven record of accomplishment using data informatics.
