Rohde & Schwarz announced that its R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer now provides 5 GHz analysis bandwidth, which is required for analyzing wideband signals such as automotive radar FMCW chirp signals, IEEE 802.11ay signals and 5G waveform candidates.
With the new R&S FSW-B5000 option, in combination with the R&S RTO2064 digital oscilloscope as an external digitizer, the R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer equipped with the new hardware option provides equalized 5 GHz signal analysis bandwidth.
The amplitude and phase response of the R&S FSW85 together with the R&S FSW-B5000 are characterized at the factory across the entire frequency range. The amplitude and phase measurement accuracy are guaranteed by Rohde & Schwarz throughout the measurement bandwidth.
The R&S FSW-B5000 supports center frequencies between 9.5 GHz and 90 GHz. For frequencies above 85 GHz, the R&S FSW85 needs to be equipped with the R&S FSW-B90G option, which extends the frequency range up to 90 GHz.
The transient and pulse measurement applications for the R&S FSW allow analysis of FMCW chirp signals and hopped and pulsed radar signals required for automotive radar applications. The R&S FSW-B5000 option also makes it possible to capture IEEE 802.11ay wideband signals for postprocessing and to perform measurements on waveform candidates for the future 5G standard.
