Copper Mountain Technologies Video: Time Domain Reflectometry Measurements with a Vector Network Analyzer - RF CafeIndianapolis, IN, January 27, 2020 - Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) has produced a series of videos to help users of its diverse line of vector network analyzers (VNAs) get the most out of their extensive capabilities. Proprietary features in both hardware and software supplies VNAs designed by CMT with capabilities far beyond similar equipment by other companies. This video entitled, "Time Domain Reflectometry Measurements with a Vector Network Analyzer," is one of a series of videos that can be found on the Copper Mountain Technologies website.

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 and distance and the magnitude of the reflection coefficient may be ascertained from the delay and magnitude of the returning reflected signal. This measurement is performed in a very wide band measurement and the signal to noise ratio can be quite poor because of this. TDR performed using a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) allows for the measurement to be made in a narrow RF bandwidth with a corresponding large improvement in signal to noise ratio. This method, utilizing the reverse Fourier Transform on a VNA is clearly superior.

About Copper Mountain Technologies

Copper Mountain Technologies develops innovative RF test and measurement solutions for engineers all over the world. The company's headquarters is in Indianapolis with sales offices in Singapore and Miami. The company pioneered metrology-grade USB VNAs in 2011 and continues to push for innovation and change in the industry to ensure engineers have access to the best technology. CMT achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification in 2019. The calibration lab in the USA is accredited in accordance with the recognized international standard ISO/IEC 17025 (2017) and meets all requirements of ANSI/NCSL Z540-1994-1. All CMT VNAs include application and automation support, and years of our engineering expertise at your disposal.

Copper Mountain Technologies provides a broad range of USB vector network analyzers, calibration kits, and accessories for 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm impedance. CMT VNAs are used for RF and Microwave applications from 9 kHz to 110 GHz by engineers in industries like defense, automotive, materials measurement, medical, broadcasting, and telecommunications.

Copper Mountain Technologies' VNAs include an RF measurement module and a software application which runs on any Windows PC, laptop or tablet, connecting to the measurement hardware via USB interface. The user can take advantage of the latest OS, processing power, larger display, and reliable performance of an external PC, as well as lower total cost of ownership and simplified maintenance of the analyzer. The result is a faster, more effective test process that fits into the modern workspace in lab, production, field and secure testing environments. This creative approach made Copper Mountain Technologies a leader in the industry and earned them both the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Global Leadership in Innovation Award and the 2017 Product Leadership Award.

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
