CMT has introduced a range of solutions that meet customer demand for less expensive, smaller, more portable, and higher performing VNAs

Frost & Sullivan Applauds Copper Mountain Technologies for its Robust USB VNA Solution - RF CafeSanta Clara, California — August 15, 2017 — Based on its recent analysis of the universal serial bus (USB) vector network analyzer (VNA) industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) with the 2017 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. The imminent move of many Internet of Things (IoT) technologies from research to commercialization is expected to drive the demand for lower cost instrumentation over the next 5 to 10 years. CMT is well positioned to make the most of this opportunity with a strong and established USB VNA offering that is coupled with superior customer support spanning customer service, software development, and customization.

"CMT distinguishes itself from the competition by offering quality measurement VNAs that provide reliable results, yet are small, can be simply integrated into systems, and are more affordable than traditional analyzers," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Director Jessy Cavazos. "In addition, CMT places due emphasis on providing outstanding support to Tier II and Tier III customers that do not have the need or the means to afford high-end VNA solutions from incumbents."

The company has set up a dedicated team of engineers to respond to customer questions. Its software production team writes test and production automation software for running customers' entire test process, test results sorting and storage, work order generation, work order status recording, labeling, and part number assignments.

CMT has also increased its focus on customization in the past year. Because it does not have a computer inside the VNA box, it is not limited by a computer or screen size, dials, and buttons. CMT can easily move modules and PC boards, thereby changing the form factor, type, and location of connectors to meet specific customer requirements.

CMT has expanded its product portfolio of USB VNAs to include various models of different performance, size, and price points. Its portfolio of VNAs is comprised of:

1-port VNAs, also known as reflectometers or cable and antenna analyzers, with four models that range in frequency from 1 MHz to 18 GHz Compact, which scores high in form factor while still providing sufficient performance for many customers, includes six models ranging in frequency from 9 kHz to 8.5 GHz Planar, a full-size VNA product line that includes four models ranging in frequency from 100 kHz to 8 GHz Cobalt product lines—its flagship lines—which include 12 models ranging in frequency from 100 kHz to 20 GHz; the company also offers the CobaltFX system, which is a high-performing and affordable millimeter-wave solution up to 110 GHz.

Significantly, the company has a dedicated metrology group that focuses on temperature stability and measurement accuracy during the design phase of the instruments. This guarantees that solutions will perform as per the specifications.

CMT's current customer base primarily consists of companies involved in research activities. However, users are increasingly employing USB VNAs in the production and deployment space as IoT products move from the research and development to the manufacturing phase.

"The higher adoption of USB VNA is also driven by the rising costs of tests and customer awareness of the ways in which USB instrumentation can help them be more cost efficient," noted Ms. Cavazos. "CMT has optimally tapped this demand by partnering with companies in allied industries. This strategy has not only enhanced its value proposition to customers, but also set it up for future growth in the USB VNA industry."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
