- Buyers Guide
In a joint effort, Rohde & Schwarz and Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., have extensively tested the user plane throughput of the new Qualcomm® Gobi™ 9x35 chipset in compliance with 3GPP Release 10 for LTE-Advanced. In the setup on display at Mobile World Congress, the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz simulates the LTE-Advanced network.
The new R&S RTE from Rohde & Schwarz is available with bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. An acquisition rate of more than one million waveforms per second helps users find signal faults quickly. The scope's highly accurate digital trigger system with virtually no trigger jitter delivers highly precise results. The single-core A/D converter with more than seven effective bits (ENOB) almost completely eliminates signal distortion.
At Mobile World Congress 2014, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase the R&S TSME – a new, ultracompact drive test scanner for today's and tomorrow’s wireless communications standards and frequency bands.
The R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 platforms from Rohde & Schwarz will expand the overall test capabilities of PCTEST Lab, boost its ability to offer the complete range of wireless test services needed for global certification, and make certification testing more efficient for customers.
SK Telecom and Rohde & Schwarz plan to build a test bed for active antenna systems (AAS), a smart antenna system developed as part of SK Telecom’s strategy to promote a concept known as SUPER Cell. The aim is to create a stable mobile environment that allows customers to experience faster speeds by enhancing traffic management efficiency through smart antenna systems.
Rohde & Schwarz and its HAMEG Instruments subsidiary now market a range of favourably priced test and measurement equipment bearing the new joint "Value Instruments by Rohde & Schwarz" label.
A unique feature of the tried and tested R&S NRP power sensors is their ability to work independently of a specific base unit. The sensors can be connected directly to a PC or laptop via USB. Rohde & Schwarz has now implemented this feature for compact smartphones and tablet PCs as well.
Manufacturers and test houses can now use the R&S VTC and R&S VTE video testers from Rohde & Schwarz to test next-generation HDMI sink devices with ultra-HD or 4k screen resolution. This is possible thanks to the new R&S VT-B360 HDMI TX 300 MHz HDMI module, which is equipped with four parallel HDMI channels with ultra-HD resolution. Tests can be performed on TVs, monitors, projectors and A/V receivers with conventional screen resolutions as well.
More dynamic range and measurement speed in the microwave range: The new R&S ZNB20 and R&S ZNB40 network analyzers now offer these features in the midrange price segment as well. Like all models in the R&S ZNB family, their compact hardware platform requires less space than similar instruments. The advanced 16:9 format touchscreen makes operation easy.
A new measurement option from Rohde & Schwarz for the R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyzer supports realtime signal analysis for frequencies up to 50 GHz with an analysis bandwidth of 160 MHz.
