Today it is hard to imagine data exchange and instrument control without USB. No other interface has achieved such popularity for user equipment, electronic consumer goods and industrial products. As a result, the need for reliable, fast test solutions in development and integration has also increased. New software from Rohde & Schwarz makes the company's high-performance oscilloscope ideal for automated USB 2.0 compliance tests.
The R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester is a multistandard test platform that developers can use to test user equipment for compliance with all wireless communications standards. Rohde & Schwarz has developed a new and innovative graphical test script development tool for this platform that does not require any programming experience: R&S CMWcards.
New bandwidths, mixed-signal analysis and options for testing USB interfaces, CAN LIN buses and audio signals: Rohde & Schwarz significantly expanded its oscilloscope portfolio in 2012. At the embedded world 2013 trade fair in Nuremberg (hall 4, booth 112), the company will present its latest applications, two new probes and other state-of-the-art products.
With the R&S RSC family, Rohde & Schwarz is launching a unique range of switchable step attenuators. The product family encompasses the world's first step attenuator up to 67 GHz and a precision model with 0.1 dB step size offering excellent accuracy and stability.
Rohde & Schwarz, a leading manufacturer of audio, video and telecommunications test equipment, announced that it is collaborating with Dolby Laboratories Inc. to provide audio test technology to Dolby and its licensees.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
Rohde & Schwarz has tailored its mid-range measuring instruments to handle WLAN signals in line with IEEE 802.11ac. Using the R&S SMBV100A and R&S FSV, manufacturers of WLAN chipsets, components and devices can now easily generate and analyze signals with 160 MHz bandwidth.
Rohde & Schwarz adds the rugged, passive R&S RT ZZ80 broadband probe to its portfolio. This probe offers a bandwidth of 8 GHz. When analyzing electronic circuits, passive broadband probes such as the R&S RT-ZZ80 are a cost-efficient, rugged alternative to active, high bandwidth probes. They are well-suited for testing transmission lines with low impedance (20 Ohm to 100 Ohm).
Fast, precise, highly linear – users working with a frequency range over 67 GHz now also benefit from the unique features of the thermal power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz. The new R&S NRP-Z58 is the world's first power sensor that covers the frequency range continuously from DC to 110 GHz.
