Original Metrology-Grade USB VNAs to EXTEND YOUR REACH Since 2011
Since the first VNA for S-parameter measurement came out in the 1960s, users have been making measurements. However, the bulky size, outdated operating systems, and high cost created challenges for engineers. Copper Mountain Technologies saw a need and went to work.
In 2011, CMT released the first ever metrology-grade USB VNA. This opened a world of new possibilities for VNA users. Thousands of engineers started using our USB VNAs, which caused established VNA providers to follow our lead.
CMT continues to innovate giving engineers new capabilities and improving your workflow. We don’t expect every project to fit neatly into our box. We aim to extend the reach of engineers by fitting into yours. We designed our analyzers for easy customization, to deliver a high performing custom VNA solution at a lower cost.
Engineers in production environments needed a compact, secure, and fast VNA with Direct Receiver, so we built the first USB VNAs with Direct Receiver Access. This VNA occupied less production space and gave engineers the ability to make accurate s-parameter measurements of high-power devices for applications like load pull and increased speed and accessibility for automated scripts.
Recognizing the importance of providing a range of solutions, we created four series of Compact VNAs, allowing users to select the features, performance, and price point that suites them. The new M Series of Compact VNAs are economy network analyzers that are at a more affordable price point for those who don’t need advanced software features, such as time domain, mixer measurements, or advanced calibration. The new SC Series Compact VNAs are the high performing portable 2-port VNAs with 140 dB dynamic range, 16 µs measurement speed, and wider output power.
