Brief Description

The R&S®SMW200A is the vector signal generator for the most demanding applications. As a result of its flexibility, performance and intuitive operation, it is a perfect tool for generating complex, digitally modulated signals of high quality.

The R&S®SMW200A is the ideal generator for digitally modulated signals required for the development of new wideband communications systems, the verification of 3G and 4G base stations or in the aerospace and defense sector.

The I/Q modulation bandwidth of up to 160 MHz with internal baseband satisfies fourth-generation standards (e.g. LTE-Advanced and IEEE 802.11ac), and the R&S®SMW200A is designed to meet future requirements. Its modular scalable architecture allows users to optimize the generator to their applications and to upgrade it as required.

A second RF path can be added, as well as a maximum of two baseband and four fading simulator modules – without compromising on signal quality. As a result, the R&S®SMW200A can create signal scenarios that previously required multiple instruments or could not be implemented at all. From MIMO up to 8x2 to LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation including fading – never before has an instrument offered such high-class signal generation capability.

If more than two RF paths are required, additional R&S®SGS100A signal generator modules can be connected. The intuitive, touchscreen-based operating concept provides the user with an overview of measurements, no matter how complex, and quickly delivers the desired results.

Brief Description

The R&S®ZVA series are high-end VNAs with up to four sources for sophisticated measurements up to 110 GHz. They are an ideal choice for demanding measurements on active and passive components and modules, which require high performance and wide versatility. The frequency range of the high-frequency models can be extended up to 500 GHz.

Instrument concept

The R&S®ZVA contains one source for each pair of ports (67 GHz has one source per port). A special switch arrangement allows parallel signal output, i. e. signals can be output to the DUT via all ports at the same time. In addition, direct generator and receiver access is provided optionally. This concept offers many advantages with regard to measurement speed and functionality.

The above design features make the R&S®ZVA an analyzer of unprecedented performance and functionality, which is especially true for the four-port model. Following are a few highlights:
Use of the second source as an LO for fast mixer measurements
Generation of a swept two-tone signal for fast intermodulation measurements versus frequency or power
True differential measurements on balanced DUTs
Parallel signal output and measurement at the test ports for measuring two or more DUTs simultaneously.
Direct generator / receiver access (option) enabling the following, for example: Loop-in of preamplifiers into generator paths
Loop-in of attenuators into the receiver paths
Connection of external test setups, e.g. power amplifiers, or use of analyzer as a multichannel receiver, e.g. for antenna measurements

Brief Description

Although audio signals are mainly processed digitally nowadays, analog technology will remain a viable alternative that is continuously being enhanced. Therefore, both analog and digital measurements must be performed. The R&S®UPV audio analyzer is designed precisely for this purpose.

The R&S®UPV enables users to perform virtually all measurements that are necessary in the audio world: frequency response measurement, total harmonic distortion (THD) displays, spectral displays, analysis of digital interfaces, and much more. The generator is just as versatile. It can be used to create any conceivable signal from sinewave and noise signals up to multi-sinewave signals.

The R&S®UPV is an all-in-one instrument with an integrated control PC, making it easy to transport. Since the instrument comes factory-ready, it merely needs to be unpacked and switched on before being put into operation. Peripherals are therefore not required. Optional modules and software expansions that can be integrated into the instrument
open up a broad scope of further applications.

The R&S®UPV features an intuitive user interface (Windows XP operating system). The large screen plays a key role, not only for displaying measurement results. All settings are made in panels that contain all interrelated functions and settings. Since the operating philosophy is easy to understand and since analog and digital measurements are performed in a similar manner, users can quickly master instrument operation.

The instrument features scalable graphical windows that can be moved around on the screen as needed, providing all measurement results at a glance. Results can be displayed in realtime for one or both channels and can optionally be expanded to a maximum of 16 channels. Multiple measurement functions/graphics are available simultaneously. For example, analyses in the frequency and time domains can be displayed at the same time. With graphics, results can be read off using vertical and horizontal cursors, and limit lines or stored measurement results can be superimposed on them or compared with them.
