Rohde & Schwarz brings 1GHz bandwidth to mid-range analyser
Manufacturers of future cellular and wireless systems can now use a wideband signal test solution that was previously available only in high-end instruments
Manufacturers of future cellular and wireless systems, infrastructure and amplifiers can now profit from a wideband signal test solution that was previously available only in high-end instruments.
Rohde & Schwarz has added an internal analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz to its R&S FSVA3000 mid-range signal and spectrum analyser. The new R&S FSV3-B1000 hardware option is available for all models from 7.5 GHz to 44 GHz, while comparable solutions offer just 160 MHz analysis bandwidth.
The R&S FSVA3000 supports manufacturers in the development and production of 5G NR base stations, mobile phones and components, especially in the 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands, while meeting tight time-to-market requirements. In combination with the supported 5G NR downlink and uplink measurement options, this makes the R&S FSVA3000 an easy to set up solution for analysing 5G NR signals with several component carriers. The instrument, which also addresses users in Aerospace & Defense and automotive applications, can also characterise wideband amplifiers or can be used for troubleshooting, capturing even very short events.
The R&S FSVA3000, which comes with an advanced autoset feature allowing the quick configuration of frequently performed measurements, now offers sufficient bandwidth for SEM and ACLR measurements of wideband signals also in I/Q mode. The analyser’s outstanding RF performance allows capturing and predistorting for instance a 200 MHz wide signal and measure the effects of distortion up to the fifth harmonic. The R&S FSVA3000 also supports measurement of short rise and fall times (down to 1 ns system rise time) and detection of ultrashort pulses. This allows the analysis of frequency agile signals within 1 GHz as used in radar and tactical radio.
