The R&S FSW50 Signal and Spectrum Analyzer Characterizes
Wideband Signals Continuously up to 50 GHz
Munich, May 03, 2013 - Rohde & Schwarz has increased the frequency range of its high-end R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer to 50 GHz. In conjunction with analysis bandwidths of up to 320 MHz, the new microwave model is perfect for sophisticated R&D measurements and for radar and satellite applications.
The new high-end R&S FSW50 signal and spectrum analyzer is ideal in the development, testing, verification and production of transmitters and components such as those used in radar applications and satellite and military communications systems. The analyzer covers the frequency range from 2 Hz through 50 GHz. Using harmonic mixers from Rohde & Schwarz, the frequency range can be extended to 110 GHz.
In addition, Rohde & Schwarz has doubled the analysis bandwidth of the R&S FSW50 from 160 MHz to 320 MHz. This value is unparalleled in the industry and allows the demodulation of wideband signals such as radar chirps up to 50 GHz. In the past, measuring these kinds of wideband signals often required complicated test setups consisting of a digital oscilloscope and a downconverter. The R&S FSW50 not only simplifies the test setup; it also offers significantly wider dynamic range and is easier to calibrate.
Featuring wide RF dynamic range, high measurement speed and numerous measurement functions, the R&S FSW50 is an excellent microwave analyzer that is particularly useful in industrial and university R&D laboratories. Aerospace and defense calibration labs requiring a maximum input frequency of 50 GHz or high repeatability of results will also benefit from the instrument. The low DANL of –164 dBm/Hz in the microwave range with activated preamplifier allows even the smallest of spurious emissions to be detected such as those found in radar signals. The analyzer offers high sensitivity close to the carrier even at 50 GHz, featuring a phase noise of -114 dBc (Hz) at 10 kHz from the carrier.
The integrated multistandard radio analyzer (MSRA) function of the R&S FSW50 makes it possible to measure spectrum and modulation parameters of differently modulated signals, including their correlation in time. This makes it very easy to analyze how different signals affect each other and provides an efficient means of identifying errors caused by this interaction. The 12.1” (31 cm) touchscreen interface makes operation very convenient, especially for complex measurement tasks. The MultiView function allows users to simultaneously display multiple measurements and different applications on the screen.
The high-end R&S FSW50 signal and spectrum analyzer is now available from Rohde & Schwarz. The 320 MHz analysis bandwidth will be available soon.
