The generalized pencil of function (GPOF) method, also known as the matrix pencil method, is used to improve the resolution of HP 8510B network analyzer data in the time domain. This method provides for much higher resolution than the Fourier techniques. A comparison of the two methods is given for the example of the Beatty standard. The examples show that a parametric technique such as the GPOF can provide accurate and reliable results with a high degree of resolution even when the fast Fourier transform (FFT)-based technique fails.
