USB VNAs in Higher Education
Outfit a Full Lab for the Same Cost as One Traditional Instrument
Universities with RF engineering labs have limited budgets, yet future RF engineers need to learn and practice valuable S-parameter measurement skills on modern equipment that fits today’s workplace. Some of our university customers tell us they were able to outfit a full lab with new Compact Series network analyzers for the same money as one used traditional instrument. With USB VNAs, measurement setup and results post-processing can be accomplished outside the lab on students’ own PCs, and results can be easily exported into various formats for creating reports and writing papers. The VNA software may be downloaded on multiple students’ laptops and then connected to the measurement module when they need to make measurements. All their test results are then easily saved on their own PCs. There is no charge for the software, which can be downloaded from our website.
To support the education of future engineers, CMT offers educational discount of 10%.
