Copper Mountain Technologies

A Decade of Empowering Engineers

In 2011, Copper Mountain Technologies launched the industry’s first metrology-grade USB VNA. This gave users access to affordable and portable instrumentation without sacrificing performance. Since then, our focus has been empowering engineers with flexible VNA solutions backed by comprehensive support from an expert team of applications engineers.


Over the past decade, CMT’s product line has expanded to include over 30 instruments and application specific solutions for frequency ranges up to 110 GHz, including options for direct receiver access, frequency extension, easy system integration, and software compatibility for both Windows and Linux OS. As our product offerings have evolved, our commitment to customer support remains unchanged. We deliver solutions that extend the reach of engineers, with our own RF engineers supporting your team to help design/perform your measurements and ensure effective system integration.


As we reflect on this milestone of ten years in operation, CMT is especially thankful for the users who have embraced our products and paved the way for a new kind of VNA solution. Our success depends on yours. Thank you for your partnership.

About Copper Mountain Technologies

Copper Mountain Technologies provides vector network analyzers for thousands of clients in close to 100 countries around the world.

It can be a challenge to find affordable test equipment capable of operating in the low frequency range required for Butterfly Network’s ultrasound probe. Copper Mountain Technologies’ PXIe-S5090 2-Port 9 GHz Analyzer has provided improved speed and performance to match their unique application needs. Comprehensive support from CMT’s expert applications engineers has helped optimize VNA performance and gave Butterfly Network the results they were looking for.
SonomaticCase Study
Created by potrace 1.10, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2011 Read More
Sonomatic performs a wide array of non-destructive tests on non-metallic materials such as fiberglass and polyethylene piping. These materials are used for gas, water, fracking, and additional areas where conventional testing techniques are inadequate. Featuring a frequency range of 85 MHz to 14 GHz and a measurement speed of 200 µs, the performance of Copper Mountain Technologies’ R140 1-Port VNA, coupled with its small size, make it the perfect instrument to address Sonomatic’s unique needs.
