- A new hardware option for the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer provides 2 GHz analysis bandwidth to analyze wideband signal used in 5G, radar and automotive applications.
- The frequency ranges of FSW analyzers rise to 50 GHz.
Rohde & Schwarz is expanding the internal analysis bandwidth of its R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer up to 2 GHz by introducing the new R&S FSW-B2001 option. This test solution enables R&D users to investigate wideband signals without the need for an external digitizer.
The R&S FSW-B2001 option provides 14-bit ADC resolution, an achieves a SFDR (Spurious-free dynamic range) level of -65 dBc for the 1200 MHz bandwidth..
The instrument can measure an EVM of around -40.0 dB error vector magnitude with an OFDM signal (792 MHz BW, 300 kHz spacing, 64QAM, 4096 FFT) at 28 GHz.
Bandwidth up to 2000 MHz facilitates research and development for next generation mobile standards, as well as characterization of wideband amplifiers for 5G. Aerospace and defense developers will be able to use the 2 GHz analysis bandwidth to measure radar pulses down to nanosecond widths, and analyze frequency-agile radar or hopping radio systems. Automotive R&D applications include characterization of FM carrier wave signals for radar applications, and ultrawide bandwidth signals such as those used in keyless entry systems.
The R&S FSW-B2001 option is available for the R&S FSW43 and R&S FSW50 signal and spectrum analyzers with frequency ranges up to 43.5 GHz and 50 GHz.
In addition, those R&S FSWs already equipped with 1200 MHz internal analysis bandwidth (option R&S FSW-B1200) are readily upgraded via a key code
