There are various types of AC/coaxial adapter for line impedance stabilization network (LISN) calibration because the AC plug used differs among countries. The difference in the characteristics of the adapters may be large at a high frequency such as 1 GHz; thus, their characteristics should be compared. In this paper, the transmission characteristics of one-phase AC/coaxial adapters for Japan (A-type) and UK and some Asian countries (BF and B3-types, respectively) are compared using their equivalent circuit models. The following two results are obtained: (1) the BF-type most strongly affects the LISN calibration, and (2) the transmission coefficient of the A-type is the least affected by the reference ground.
