Improving R&S®FSWP Measurement Speed

The Rohde & Schwarz®FSWP (FSWP) is a modern, digital signal processing based, phase-noise test set that performs many tasks in parallel in an effort to improve measurements speed. However, several measurement settings drastically affect measurement speed. This paper will discuss these settings and provide suggestions on improving overall measurement speed.

NewSpace Terminal Testing Challenges and Considerations

Today’s satellite communication systems combine features from legacy cellular networks and emerging wireless technologies. New constellations are under development that attempt to provide ubiquitous mobility and internet networks via satellites, ground stations and user terminals (Figure 1). Each link in the supply chain presents unique challenges for R&D, production and deployment for both the components and system development.

Application Note: Improving R&S®FSWP Measurement Speed

For automated test applications, measurement time is often as important as the quality of the measurement. In practice, phase noise measurements are generally not considered fast, but test engineers still desire to save as much test time as possible. With this paper you get a modern, digital signal processing based, phase-noise test set that performs many tasks in parallel in an effort to improve measurement speed.
