M5180 2-Port 18 GHz Analyzer
The M5180 is a 2-port, 18 GHz Vector Network Analyzer that delivers metrology-grade performance in a more economical package that excludes a number of advanced features:
- Vector Mixer Calibration
- TRL Calibration
- Frequency Offset
- Time Domain
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.
M5180 VNA includes an RF measurement module and S2 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, making it easy to share the use of the analyzer measurement module.
Applications of the M5180 include RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, antenna matching, quality control, material measurements, and many others.

NEW! The Automatic Fixture Removal (AFR) plug-in uses metrology grade de-embedding algorithms to eliminate fixture effects on your DUT. The AFR plug-in is available for use with Copper Mountain Technologies’ 2- and 4-port VNAs. CMT offers 2xThrough fixture removal support with three methods that fit different fixture configurations:
- Time-gating approach is ideal for fixtures with long electrical length of leading transmission lines or for higher frequency options.
- Filtering algorithm is useful in cases where signals in both parts of the fixture significantly overlap in time domain.
- Bisect method covers instances with short electrical length of the fixture leading transmission lines and inadequate time domain resolution.
