Copper Mountain Technologies’ Cobalt 20 GHz VNAs can be used with third-party extender modules, such as Virginia Diodes, Inc. (VDI)
. The VDI waveguide bands below have been verified with CMT USB vector network analyzers to work with VNAX
extender modules. This allows a user to test up to 330 GHz. This solution can be used for a variety of applications
including antenna range measurements, material characterization, wafer s-parameter measurements, automotive radar & sensor testing, and many more applications.
Third-party extenders, including VDI extenders, only work with 20 GHz CMT VNAs and require one booster kit for 2-port VNAs (C4220) and two booster kits for 4-port VNAs (C4420). The extenders are packaged in small and versatile enclosures that allow for flexible port arrangements.
