Spectrum analyzer offers 2GHz internal analysis bandwidth

Rohde and Schwarz expands the internal analysis bandwidth of its R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyzer up to 2GHz by introducing the new R&S FSW-B2001 option. This test solution enables research and development users to investigate wideband signals in detail without the need for an external digitizer. The option provides 14-bit ADC resolution and wide dynamic range, characterized by excellent SFDR figures, for example -65dBc for 1200MHz bandwidth. This translates directly into outstanding signal analysis performance. The instrument can measure an EVM of around -40dB error vector magnitude with an OFDM signal (792MHz BW, 300kHz spacing, 64QAM, 4096FFT) at 28GHz. Bandwidth up to 2000MHz 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 2GHz 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.
