The uncertainty, due to random noise, of the measurements made with a mixer-based nonlinear vector network analyzer are analyzed. An approximate covariance matrix corresponding to the measurements is derived that can be used for fitting models and maximizing the dynamic range in the measurement setup. The validity of the approximation is verified with measurements.
