Copper Mountain Tech Rolls Out VNAs with Up To 16 Ports

June 18, 2022
Excellent dynamic-range specs and measurement speeds make these new VNAs a candidate for a broad range of measurement applications.

This article is part of our IMS2022 coverage.

While at IMS2022, visit Copper Mountain Technologies in Booth 10036 for demos of the company’s new SN5090 vector network analyzers. The instruments, which offer excellent dynamic range and measurement speeds, are offered 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” rack and utilizes robust, durable port connectors with ergonomic positioning for simplified cable connection. SN5090 VNAs feature 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 DUTs: multiport antennas, integrated circuits, switches, interconnects, cable assemblies, diplexers, and more. 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. This simplifies the evaluation of multiple RF channel phases for beamsteering applications.”
