Rohde & Schwarz is extending the functional range of its R&S SMW200A vector signal generator to include the DVB-S2 satellite standard and its extension DVB-S2X. The R&S SMW200A with the new option provides a simple solution for testing components, devices and satellites that support these standards. It is the first single-device solution on the market to generate DVB-S2/DVB-S2X signals not only as IF signals below 6 GHz but also on transmission frequencies in the Ku band and other microwave bands up to 40 GHz.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is taking shape. Manufacturers who want to integrate wireless modules into their products now face completely new test requirements. The US's largest wireless network operator is the first to publish specific test plans for IoT integrators. In response, Rohde & Schwarz announces the availability of its new R&S TS 290 IoT carrier acceptance test system, which is based on these test plans. Claimed to be the only test solution of its kind, it offers RF, protocol and performance test cases in a single box.
The R&S ELEKTRA EMI test software has been designed for easy and intuitive EMI measurements during product development. It supports EMI test receivers and spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz. Even development engineers or technicians who only occasionally use these instruments to measure electromagnetic interference are able to configure automated test sequences quickly, often right in the development lab, using GTEM cells or line impedance stabilization networks (LISN).
Rohde & Schwarz introduced a modular probe system for precision measurements up to 9 GHz. The R&S RT-ZM probe system used in combination with a Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscope is an excellent solution for easily and precisely measuring fast signals. It offers a maximum bandwidth up to 9 GHz, a DC offset range of ±16 V and the MultiMode function that allows users to switch between test modes without recontacting.
Rohde & Schwarz has successfully demonstrated the generation and analysis of 5G signals based on the characteristics as specified in the Verizon open trial specifications. The R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer both provide outstanding test and measurement capabilities, resulting in an EVM performance of 1 percent when applying these 5G signals.
Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the R&S FSVA, an enhanced mid range signal and spectrum analyzer for signal analysis and demodulation up to millimeter-wave frequencies. Users benefit from the features of this instrument in all measurements up to 40 GHz where low phase noise, high sensitivity and wide analysis bandwidth are required. R&S FSVA offers a 160 MHz analysis bandwidth over its entire frequency range.
The new R&S TS7124 RF shielded box from Rohde & Schwarz offers the best shielding effectiveness, the largest interior dimensions and the most flexible antenna configurations in its class. It provides reliable, reproducible measurement results in a shielded test environment, especially during the production of wireless devices. Unique in its class, the R&S TS7124 offers shielding in excess of 80 dB at 6 GHz. Its frequency range from 300 MHz to 6 GHz.
R&S CMW290 functional radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz is the right solution for users who want to integrate wireless modules into their platforms and test them. For end-to-end testing of applications, the R&S CMW290 can simulate a cellular network and set up a connection between the application on the device or system and the server. IMS server, audio or eCall/ERA-Glonass functionality are also available for the R&S CMW290.
The R&S FSWP phase noise analyzer and VCO tester from Rohde & Schwarz enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements. It also allows users to measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers, high-end oscillators (OCXO, DRO, …) and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) more quickly than with any other solution. The high-end instrument covers a frequency range up to 26 GHz and offers a top dynamic range.
The completely redesigned R&S NRPxxS and R&S NRPxxSN USB three-path diode power sensors offer unprecedented measurement speed and accuracy, even at low levels. The sensors enable 10,000 triggered measurements per second with a minimum trigger resolution of 100 µs. A special mode permits 50,000 equidistant measurements per second. The improved design decreased the lower measurement limit to -70 dBm, resulting in a very wide dynamic range of 93 dB.
