R&S FSVA3000 signal and spectrum analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz

R&S FSV and R&S FSVA signal and spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz extend frequency up to 50 GHz

  • With the introduction of the new variants R&S FSV3050 and R&S FSVA3050, the frequency range of this signal and spectrum analyzer family is now extended to 50 GHz and up to 54 GHz with an additional option.
  • These instruments will be presented at the Rohde & Schwarz booth D18 at the European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2022, which takes place from September 27 to 29 at the Milan Convention Center.

The R&S FSV and R&S FSVA analyzers, which are designed for both laboratory and production use, are thus suitable for testing applications in 5G NR communications equipment, since they now support the entire FR2 frequency band up to 52.6 GHz.

The R&S FSV offers up to 200 MHz analysis bandwidth and an phase noise of -127 dBc/Hz (f_center = 1 GHz, 10 kHz offset). With up to 1 GHz analysis bandwidth it enables users to perform demanding measurement applications such as linearizing power amplifiers, capturing short events and characterizing frequency agile signals.

The main driver for 50 GHz models comes from 5G NR applications. The FR2 band n262 spans 47.2 – 48.2 GHz, which is covered by the new 50GHz models in default configuration. Option R&S FSV3-B54G for the R&S FSVA enables signal analysis up to 54 GHz, which also includes the upper edge of the FR2-1 band at 52.6 GHz. Further demands come from applications in the aerospace & defence industry. The 47.2 – 50.2 GHz and 50.4 – 51.4 GHz are filed at the ITU for GSO satellite systems. Applications are production of components like filters, amplifiers or traveling-wave tubes.

Further, also option FSV3-B710 Enhanced Performance is available for the 50 GHz variants. The R&S FSV3-B710 option provides enhanced performance and better specifications now also for the two new R&S FSV and R&S FSVA variants. It enhances the phase noise performance, lowers DANL (Displayed Average Noise Level) and for R&S FSVA provides low-end frequency range extended to 2 Hz.
