Automatic Calibration Module for Vector Network Analyzers from 20 kHz to 6.5 GHz

Developer of innovative RF test and measurement solutions, Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) has released a new Automatic Calibration Module (ACM) for Vector Network Analyzers. The ACM2506 is an automatic calibration module that can be used with all CMT Vector Network Analyzers operating from 20 kHz to 6.5 GHz. It is a fully automatic USB-controlled and powered electronic calibration module. Automating the calibration routine minimizes the number of steps required by technicians and reduces the risk of human error thereby expediting the calibration process. Automating the calibration routine also reduces wear and tear of the analyzer and RF cables.

To perform a full two-port calibration, each end of the ACM needs to be connected to the analyzer only once, as opposed to seven connections with a traditional calibration procedure. The ACM also contains a factory characterized 20 dB in-line attenuator which acts as a simulated device under test (DUT). The confidence check feature loads the factory stored DUT into memory so proper calibration can be verified.
