Copper Mountain Technologies Introduces New 1-Port VNA at IMS 2017

CMT R180Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) is introducing ten new products at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) being held from 6-8 June at the Hawai’i Convention Center in Honolulu.

They are introducing the R180, a new handheld 1-Port VNA that gives the user lab grade performance. This 1-Port VNA (Cable and Antenna Analyzer) operates from 1 MHz to 18 GHz and is the first 18 GHz 1-port VNA that can connect directly to the DUT, improving measurement accuracy by eliminating the practical limitation of test cables. The R180 can be controlled and powered through a USB-C port or through an external 5 VDC power supply. The unit delivers highly accurate results in a wide variety of measurement formats, including time domain measurement.

CMT is also expanding the Cobalt VNA product series that offers industry-leading dynamic range and sweep speed. New 2 and 4-port models in 9 GHz and 20 GHz range will offer Direct Receiver Access that meets the needs of power amplifier manufacturing testing. Other new 2 and 4-port models in 9 GHz and 20 GHz range will support Frequency Extension to 50-75 GHz, 60-90 GHz, and 75-110 GHz, for 5G IoT applications, automotive radar testing, and many other applications.

Copper Mountain Technologies' USB VNAs are next generation analyzers that include the RF measurement module and a processing module, which is a software application that runs on a Windows PC, laptop or tablet connected to the measurement hardware via USB interface. This allows for improved processing power, better display capabilities, and more reliable performance. Copper Mountain Technologies VNAs also offer a wide range of standard features that include time-domain with gating, fixture simulation (embedding and de-embedding) and frequency offset mode.

These products are being showcased at their Booth at IMS 2017.
