Copper Mountain to Discuss the Evolving Test and Measurement Requirements of IoT at EDICON

Copper Mountain Technologies will be displaying a number of their most popular vector network analyzers at the EDI CON USA 2016 to be held from 20 to 23 September, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA. Models featured at their booth will include a patented one-port Reflectometer Series R60, two-port two-path Compact Series S5065, and finally the CobaltFx, an entirely new approach to mmWave frequency extension up to 110 GHz created in collaboration with Farran Technology, Ltd.

They will also be conducting a workshop that talks about Overcoming the Evolving Test and Measurement Requirements of IoT Devices - This will be take place from 1:50 to 2:30pm in room 202 on Wednesday, September 21.

Models on display will include:


  • Frequency range of: 1.0 MHz to 6.0 GHz
  • The R60’s compact form factor allows it to connect directly to a device under test, eliminating instability introduced by test cables. This product now boasts Patent US 9,291,657.


  • Frequency range: 9 kHz to 6.5 GHz
  • Measurement time per point: 70 microseconds min. typ.
  • Applications of the S5065 include RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, distance to fault measurements, antenna matching, quality control, material measurements, and many others.


  • Supports three dedicated waveguide bands: 50 to75 GHz, 60 to 90 GHz, 75 to 110 GHz
  • First frequency extension solution built on a 9 GHz VNA.
  • Approximately half the cost of existing frequency extension solutions in the same frequency range.
