New RNVNA multiport testing solution

04 May 2020

The RNVNA solution from Copper Mountain Technologies is a customizable multiport network analysis solution for multiple-in multiple-out (MIMO) antennas and other 5G applications. RNVNA builds on the capabilities of Source: Copper Mountain TechnologiesSource: Copper Mountain TechnologiesCMT 1-port USB vector network analyzers (VNAs).

RNVNA links up to 16 analyzers together into a multiport network analysis system, allowing users to measure vector reflection and scalar transmission parameters. RNVNA is compatible with all Copper Mountain Technologies’ 1-port USB VNAs with frequency ranges up to 6 GHz (R60), 14 GHz (R140) and 18 GHz (R180).

RNVNA software allows users to manage multiple 1-port VNAs performing required measurements. Download a free demo version of the RNVNA software for systems using up to three 1-port VNAs.

The RNVNA solution incorporates shelving for mounting the VNAs. Each shelf is designed to fit a 19 in rack mounting system and can house up to eight VNAs. Frequency (FD) and trigger (TD) synchronizing devices are offered as options to increase measurement speed.

RNVNA is an effective multiport analysis solution for MIMO antenna arrays in applications such as manufacturing, 5G and more. RNVNA is used for various vector reflection and scalar transmission parameter measurements including return loss, isolation and resonance frequency.
