Copper Mountain Technologies Announces Strategic Relationship with National Instruments

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, July 17, 2019 — Copper Mountain Technologies is pleased to announce their strategic relationship with National Instruments. This exclusive collaboration will bring world-class VNA performance and speed to National Instruments’ PXI solution. National Instruments is set to release the Copper Mountain Technologies PXIe-S5090 9 GHz 2-Port VNA in August of 2019.


National Instruments will be the exclusive channel for purchasing Copper Mountain Technologies’ PXI compatible VNAs. This solution brings National Instruments’ users access to a metrology-grade VNA and allows Copper Mountain Technologies to expand the solutions it provides for manufacturing and production.



“These are very advanced VNAs in their functionality, performance, and feature set,” said CMT co-founder Alex Goloschokin. “The VNA has a very fast sweep speed, which is especially important for the production environment.” Customers welcomed this new VNA at NIWeek and IMS 2019. “The software experience is engineered for short time to first measurement and also for high performance automation with short test times, both key requirements for test engineers bringing VNAs into production test environments,” explained Jason White, Director of Product Planning at National Instruments.


With this strategic relationship, Copper Mountain Technologies will expand their solutions to the semiconductor, automotive, aerospace/defense and education industries moving forward.
