(08. 4. 2022) New VNA S5180B with pulse source from Copper Mountain Technologies

S5180B is a 2-Port 18 GHz Vector Network Analyzer offering improved performance and functionality compared to its predecessor S5180 Compact VNA. S5180B is the first CMT VNA with built-in Pulse Modulation Generation/Measurement capabilities. The Pulse Modulation feature is a paid software option sold separately from the VNA and is only compatible with the S5180B VNA due to hardware requirements. The Pulse Modulation option can be added at any time during or after the initial VNA purchase. 

S5180B has a built-in pulse modulator, synchronizer, and a set of logical generators supporting various pulse generation options and corresponding measurement modes. Pulses can be generated Synchronously or Asynchronously with respect to VNA measurement timing. The VNA can be integrated into a production test system via Manufacturing Test plug-in.

S5180B VNA includes an RF measurement module and S2 software application which runs on Windows or Linux operating system on a PC, laptop, tablet, or x86 board computer connecting to the measurement hardware via USB interface. S2 software can be installed on multiple computers, making it easy to share the use of the analyzer measurement module.

VNAs and ACMs are delivered with factory calibration certificates containing no data. The add-on option for ISO17025/Z540-1 Accredited, Traceable Calibration Certificate and Uncertainties is available and needs to be specified at time of order.

The S5180B VNAs come with all the software features engineers have come to expect, at no additional cost. Standard software features include:

  • Linear/logarithmic sweeps with multiple trace formats
  • Power sweeps
  • Time domain and gating conversion
  • Frequency offset mode
  • Fixture simulation (embedding/de-embedding)
  • 16 independent channels with up to 16 traces each
  • Markers with marker search tools and marker math, various conversion algorithms, and limit tests for pass/fail criteria, etc.
  • Test Automation programming in LabView, Python, MATLAB, .NET, etc.
