Signal and spectrum analysers extend frequency up to 50GHz

15-09-2022 | Rohde & Schwarz | Test & Measurement

The Rohde & Schwarz R&S FSV is created to help users set up complex measurements in the simplest and quickest way possible. With its easy usability, high measurement speed and up to 200MHz analysis bandwidth, it is the right instrument for labs and production lines. The device, with a high dynamic range and an exceptional phase noise of -127dBc/Hz (f_center = 1GHz, 10kHz offset), delivers performance that was, until recently, reserved for high-end instruments. With up to 1GHz analysis bandwidth, it allows users to perform highly demanding measurement applications such as linearising power amplifiers, capturing short events and characterising frequency agile signals.

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

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