Rohde & Schwarz FSW signal and spectrum analyser
The high-end FSW signal and spectrum analyser is available in three models that cover the frequency ranges 2 Hz to 8 GHz, 13 or 26.5 GHz. The instrument was specially designed to meet the requirements of development laboratories in the aerospace, defence and communications industries.
The 12.1″ touchscreen’s MultiView function allows users to display the results of different applications on the screen at the same time, enabling them to keep track of even the most complex signal analyses and find errors more easily.
An additional benefit is the elimination of switching between measurement applications.
At 10 kHz carrier offset, the instrument achieves a phase noise specification of less than -137 dBc (1 Hz), which is up to 10 dB less than other analysers. This is especially important for developers of RF components and complete systems for radar applications.
By taking advantage of the device’s phase noise specification, they can achieve more stable radar signals. Equipped with the FSW-K6 option, it also supports analysis of pulsed signals, eg, for radar applications. Its broad analysis bandwidth of up to 160 MHz allows the instrument to measure wideband, hopping and chirp signals, which makes it ready today for the requirements of tomorrow’s wireless standards such as the 802.11ac.
Developers can also detect spurious emissions quickly with its low inherent noise and its ability to rapidly analyse wide frequency ranges, even when using narrow resolution bandwidths.
The analyser is suitable for developers of wireless communications base stations and components. The analyser’s 160 MHz demodulation bandwidth and multistandard radio analysis function is especially useful.
The combination of these two features in a single instrument is claimed to make it possible, for the first time, to simultaneously measure multiple mobile radio and wireless standards at different frequencies.
Users can spot signal interaction among the standards.
