Rohde & Schwarz gives you the benefit of a well-coordinated portfolio of conducted and OTA test solutions. Radar, satellite communications and 5G NR use AAS with phased array antennas for beamforming. Hybrid beamforming combines the flexibility of digital beamforming with the efficiency of analog beamforming. Increasing integration enables compact and cost-efficient AAS. To achieve accurate, reliable and efficient beamforming, it is necessary to understand and compensate for the nonlinear behavior of RF components.
The R&S®SMW200A GNSS simulator offers an easy and convenient way to test your receiver design against a wide variety of potential interferers and jammers. Test cases extend from simple coexistence simulations to complex interference scenarios with localized emitters.
The 5G New Radio online compendium from Rohde & Schwarz covers all the relevant details of 5G NR technology – the fundamentals and procedures in line with the 3GPP specification as well as key implementation aspects.
The R&S®RTO / R&S®RTE digital oscilloscope is a valuable tool for analyzing EMI problems in electronic designs. High input sensitivity, high dynamic range and a powerful FFT implementation are key features for capturing and analyzing unwanted emissions. Learn more in our paper.
At every stage of production, starting from the component design and eventually leading up to the final integration and launching phase, uncountable amount of tests are performed in order to ensure intended performance in all mission-critical aspects. The industry-leading accuracy of Rohde & Schwarz equipment described in this paper raises test yield and is a further means to make payload test more cost effective and reliable. This application note addresses system- and manufacturing engineers by focusing on CCR/CATR and TVAC RF tests of components and functional modules as well as complete satellite communication payloads at prelaunch level.
Today, R&D engineers face challenging time-to-market goals. Extending the product development schedule and delaying the product launch can prove to be extremely costly in terms of opportunity cost and lost market share. Nearly 50 % of products fail EMC compliance the first time.
Radar test systems are essential in research, development, production and maintenance of radar systems. Most radar tests are expensive to carry out in the field and have a complicated setup and operation. This application note presents a solution for testing the complete radar system by generating any kind of radar echo signals with arbitrary range, Doppler frequency and Radar Cross Section. The Radar Echo Generator makes it possible to perform real time tests on many applications including aerospace & defense and commercial radar systems.
With the evolution of 5G technology, the need for antenna array systems is growing. This increases the demand for efficient power amplifier implementations to support high-density setups. Imagine you could get 60 % more output power, 50 % more bandwith and up to 20 % efficiency gain per amplifier in a MIMO antenna array setup? Would you spend time on rethinking your implementation plans?
This application note aims to explain test procedures and give recommendations towards characterization of the relevant parameters for active phased array antennas and their passive subsystem, as often used in applications for Mobile Communication and RADAR.
