TR5048 2-Port 4.8 GHz Analyzer

Copper Mountain Technologies is announcing an End-of-Sale (EOS) for the TR5048 2-Port VNA. Per our End-of-Life Policy, this product is no longer available for purchase as of June 30, 2020. We will provide service and repair for this instrument for a minimum of 3 years from the EOS date and based on parts availability afterwards.


The TR5048 is a 2-port, 1 path Vector Network Analyzer delivering lab grade performance in a compact package, with all the features engineers have come to expect included standard in our software.


This portable 1.3 kg/46 oz. vector network analyzer can be battery powered and used in the field, in the laboratory, and in production testing. The VNA can be integrated into a production test system via Manufacturing Test plug-in.


TR5048 VNA includes an RF measurement module and TR 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. TR software can be installed on multiple computers, making it easy to 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.

The TR5048 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.
