C4209 2-Port 9 GHz Analyzer, Frequency Extension Compatible
C4209 Vector Network Analyzer delivers industry-leading dynamic range and sweep speed, with all the features engineers have come to expect included standard in our software. This VNA is frequency extender compatible and is the anchor network analyzer for the CobaltFx frequency extender system.
This “full rack” vector network analyzer with dimensions of 14″ x 17.3″ x 3.8″ (355 x 440 x 96 mm) and a weight of just 15.5 lbs. (7 kg), can be used in the laboratory and in production testing, without requiring a lot of space. The VNA can be integrated into production test system via Manufacturing Test Plug-in. Auxiliary Board Option is available on all Cobalt VNAs at the time of order (factory-installed) or as an add-on at a later date.
C4209 VNA includes an RF measurement module and S2 software application which runs on Windows or Linux operating system on a PC, laptop, tablet, or x86 board computer connecting to the measurement hardware via USB interface. S2 software can be installed on multiple computers that share the use of the analyzer measurement module.
VNAs and ACMs are delivered with factory calibration certificates containing no data. The add-on option for ISO17025/Z540-1 Accredited, Traceable Calibration Certificate and Uncertainties is available and needs to be specified at time of order.
Applications of the C4209 include SAW and BTS filter tuning, RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, distance to fault measurements, antenna matching, quality control, material measurements, and many others.

The C4209 VNAs come with all the software features engineers have come to expect, at no additional cost. Standard software features include:
- Linear/logarithmic sweeps with multiple trace formats
- Power sweeps
- Time domain and gating conversion
- Frequency offset mode
- Fixture simulation (embedding/de-embedding)
- 16 independent channels with up to 16 traces each
- Markers with marker search tools and marker math, various conversion algorithms, and limit tests for pass/fail criteria, etc.
- Test Automation programming in LabView, Python, MATLAB, .NET, etc.
CMT’s Manufacturing Test plugin is available to integrate the VNA into your production test system.
