RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

May 24, 2016 - Copper Mountain Technologies plans to shake things up at IMS by announcing several new models that will push the limits of current vector network analyzer technology at the 2016 International Microwave Symposium in San Francisco this week.
New models include a patented one-port R60 vector reflectometer, two new two-port two-path compact models S5065 and S5085, and finally CobaltFx, an entirely new approach to mmWave frequency extension up to 110 GHz created in collaboration with Farran Technology, Ltd.
All products continue CMT's commitment to precision measurement, and extend this commitment further by establishing new ways for the RF community to do their work more easily by increasing portability and decreasing costs.
New Model Releases include:
Frequency range of: 1 MHz-6.0 GHz The first product of its type in 2012, this product now boasts Patent US 9,291,657
Frequency range: 20 kHz-6.5 or 8.5 GHz Measurement time per point: 70 microsecond min. typ.
Supports three dedicated waveguide bands: 50-75 GHz, 60-90 GHz, 75-110 GHz First frequency extension solution built on a 9 GHz VNA. About half the cost of existing frequency extension solutions in the same frequency range. /p>
For the full press release and photos of each new model please see our 2016 IMS Press Kit on Google Drive or contact Greer Williams, marketing manager at Copper Mountain Technologies, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are attending IMS 2016 visit CMT in booth #423 to see some of the new models in action!
About Copper Mountain Technologies
The engineers at Copper Mountain Technologies are creative problem solvers. They know the people using VNAs don't just need one giant machine in a lab. They know that VNAs are needed in the field, requiring portability and flexibility. Data needs to be quickly transferred, and a test setup needs to be easily automated and recalled for various applications. The engineers at Copper Mountain Technologies are rethinking the way VNAs are developed and used.
Copper Mountain Technologies' VNAs are designed to work with the Windows PC you already use via USB interface. After installing the test software, you have a top-quality VNA at a fraction of the cost of a traditional analyzer. The result is a faster, more effective test process that fits into the modern workspace. This is the creativity that makes Copper Mountain Technologies stand above the crowd. We’re creative. We’re problem solvers.
