Optimize Beamforming From Bits to RF Beams

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.

Pre-launch Testing of Satellite Payload Application Note

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.
