Virtually interact with CMT’s software to complete a simulated calibration of a 2-port VNA.
Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) has traditionally been performed using a fast oscilloscope and a very sharp impulse or step type excitation. Reflections from the excitation are measured at the source […]
This video demonstrates how to make Pulsed S-parameter Measurements using a VNA.
How many times have you completed a series of measurements to only later find them tainted by a bad cable? The Confidence Check feature of the Automatic Calibration Module (ACM) […]
Why is it that Reflection measurements are typically only specified to -35 dB, while transmission measurements are valid to -85 or -90 dB or more? This is a common question […]
As technology keeps progressing, Vector Network Analyzers are doing the same.The development of compact and portable instruments, such as USB VNAs, provide a wide range of benefits that are changing […]
Application Profile As the Internet of Things (IoT) starts to materialize, more and more consumer and industrial products are incorporating wireless interfaces such as Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, or proprietary wireless […]
Introduction to the CMT Automation Interface Copper Mountain Technologies’ VNAs can be readily automated and there are numerous options for users who wish to do so. To help illustrate the different automation […]
Introduction Vector network analyzers need to be calibrated before measurements to ensure the most accurate measurements possible are made. To do a calibration you need a calibration kit. The characteristics […]
Introduction Connecting to an Antenna Under Test (AUT) integral to a Device (DUT) may involve some tradeoffs between measurement accuracy, electrical considerations, and mechanical ruggedness. In this paper, we describe […]
