Copper Mountain Technologies (Indianapolis, IN) has introduced two new network analyzers that allow for portable tetsing. The Planar R140 is an ultra-compact USB-powered VNA (85 MHz to 14 GHz) ideal for testing antennas and cables. R140 is the smallest high-performance reflectometer that eliminates the design problem of many test errors, as it doesn’t require any test cables. Features include:

  • A frequency range of 85 MHz to 14 GHz.
  • High-performance cable and antenna testing.
  • A lightweight and ultra-compact design for field or lab use.
  • 10,001 measurement points.
  • A vector reflectomer that measures S11 parameters.
  • A time domain with gating standard.
  • Fixture simulation.

The Planar 5048 is a compact VNA ideal for magnitude and phase measurements in the frequency range from 300 kHz to 4.8 GHz. It provides highly accurate measurements and a variety of analysis capabilities in the frequency and time domains. Features include:

  • A frequency range of 20 kHz to 4.8 GHz.
  • A dynamic range of 125 dB.
  • 200,001 measurement points.
  • A measurement time per point of 200 µs.
  • A high price-performance ratio.
  • Easy transportation between workstations.
  • Time domain, gating, and fixture simulation standard.
  • A weight of 3.3 lbs.
