Remote VNA Measurements
How can I make a measurement with a USB vector network analyzer remotely from the operating computer?
We often see this question from our VNA users and want to make sure they can and the measurements are still accurate. Using the USB connection to a 6.5 GHz vector network analyzer is extended to 300 feet, well past the normal 15-foot maximum. For the case where the VNA must be separated from the host computer by a long-distance, this is an easy solution. Our focus at Copper Mountain Technologies is extending the reach of engineers and this is another way to literally extend the reach of our VNAs.
