Copper Mountain Technologies releases compact VNAs with improved performance

30 June 2022

Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) unveiled its multiport USB vector network analyzers (VNA)s during the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2022) held in Denver, Colorado, June 19 to June 24. SN5090 VNAs are a competitively priced, versatile multiport solution with excellent dynamic range and measurement speed available in 6-, 8-, 10-, 12-, 14- and 16-port configurations.

The SN5090 VNAs are an organic extension of the Compact VNA family. This enables the full complexity of VNA measurements, a streamlined calibration process and reduced test times. The SN5090 hardware can fit a 19 inch rack and utilizes robust, durable port connectors with ergonomic positioning for simplified cable connection. SN5090 features CMT’s next-generation software that delivers an intuitive and contemporary user interface compatible with both Linux and Windows OS.

The SN5090 VNAs enable dependable and accurate testing of various device under test scenarios: multiport antennas, integrated circuits, switches, interconnects, cable assemblies and diplexers. Relevant applications include telecommunications, automotive, satellite, aerospace, defense and many other industries that require multiple input/output components.

“With built-in differential measurement capabilities, this product will enhance the design and production of next-generation HDMI and USB cables for consumer goods and high bandwidth data for automotive and aerospace applications,” explained CMT’s senior RF engineer SME, Brian Walker who spoke about how the multiport VNA solution will benefit users. “Full Far End and Near End crosstalk can be quickly and easily measured between any two of four twisted pairs in cable assemblies such as HDMI or shielded automotive cable bundles. Simplifying the evaluation of multiple RF channel phases for beam-steering applications.”
