The S5045 from Copper Mountain Technologies is a 2-Port Vector Network Analyzer that operates from 9 kHz to 4.5 GHz. It has a dynamic range of 130 dB (10 Hz IF BW) and can be used to measure all four S parameters (S11, S21, S12, and S22). The output power of this VNA can be adjusted from -55 dBm to 5 dBm and has a measurement speed of 70 µs. This portable vector network analyzer can be battery powered and used in the field, in the laboratory, and in production testing. The VNA can be integrated into a production test system using a Manufacturing Test plug-in.
The device includes an RF measurement module and S2 software application that can run on Windows or Linux operating systems on any PC, laptop, tablet, or x86 board computer connecting to the measurement hardware via the USB interface. The Copper Mountain Technologies S2 software can be installed on multiple computers, making it easy to share the use of the analyzer.
This VNA comes with all the features engineers have come to expect included standard in the software: linear/logarithmic sweeps with multiple trace formats, power sweeps, time domain and gating conversion, frequency offset mode, fixture simulation (embedding/de-embedding), 16 independent channels with up to 16 traces each, markers with marker search tools and marker math, various conversion algorithms, and limit tests for pass/fail criteria, etc.
The S5045 is available in a module with BNC (F) connectors and is ideal for applications including: 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. 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.
