The M5065 from Copper Mountain Technologies is a 2-port metrology-grade Vector Network Analyzer that operates from 300 kHz to 6.5 GHz. It is available in an economical package that excludes a number of advanced features like vector mixer calibration, TRL calibration, frequency offset, time domain, and gating. The VNA has a dynamic range of 130 dB, an output power of 5 dBm, and typical measurement speed of 70 µs per point. The VNA has a directivity of 46 dB and can be used to measure all four S parameters (S11, S21, S12, and S22).
It can be controlled using a software application that runs on a Windows PC, laptop, or tablet, connecting to the measurement hardware via USB interface. The application can be installed on multiple computers, making it easy to share the analyzer measurement module across multiple benches or labs.
The VNA is delivered with factory calibration certificates containing no data. The add-on option for ISO17025/Z540-1 accredited, traceable calibration certificate and uncertainties is available and needs to be specified at the time of order. This USB controlled VNA is suitable for RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, antenna matching, quality control, and material measurement applications.
