Insertion Loss

Welcome to the FOA virtual hands-on lab for testing insertion loss. You will use virtual tools and instruments above to simulate testing as is done with actual instruments.With each step you will choose the appropriate equipment and set them up for the next step in the process. Along the way, you will be asked questions about the process and the test results.
