LTC6431-20 S-Parameters Correct File Confirmation?


I would like to confirm S-parameter files provided for LTC6431-20 are correct. I see mention of port 3 in the header which does not make sense to me for this amplifier, and I also notice the data goes up to 5GHz which is well beyond the rated operation for the part which makes me think something is not correct. I am not sure what "SOLT2" in the header refers to either. 

Can someone please confirm if the S-parameter file linked below is correct, or if not provide correct S-parameter file?

I am referencing S-parameter file here: 

Below is what I see in header of file.

  • Hi lithelycanthrope,

    SOLT stands for Short, Open, Load, Thru calibration.

    The measurement may have been taken up to 5GHz to make sure there is a clean spectrum even beyond the part's operational range.

    Port 3 seems to be just a substitute for Port 2 (which is missing). I'll confirm with the Product Line and let you know if there is any discrepancy in the S-parameter model of the LTC6431-20.
