The new R&S
CMA180 radio test set uses state of the art digital measurement technology for testing analog
Rohde & Schwarz designed the R&S CMA180 radio test set especially for analog radio production and maintenance.
Equipped with a touchscreen for easy operation, the new tester can generate any test signal of up to 20 MHz
bandwidth and process high input power levels of up to 150 W. It offers all of the functions of a high end device
at an attractive price.
Munich, June 11, 2014 — The R&S CMA180 radio test set
enables manufacturers and service technicians to test analog radios in the 100 kHz to 3 GHz frequency range. Its
large touchscreen and straightforward menu provide for especially simple and fast operation. The R&S CMA180 uses
an integrated ARB generator for software implemented test signal generation. Users can generate any output signal
with a bandwidth of up to 20 MHz – a feature normally offered only in radiocommunications testers several times
The R&S CMA180 is the world's first radiocommunications tester that allows users to generate additional
signals with just a few mouse clicks, such as interfering signals for co channel rejection measurements. Service
technicians and test engineers can also use the instrument's integrated sequencer to configure and run automatic
The R&S CMA180 radio test set is designed for 100 W continuous input power and 150 W peak input power and is
the only tester in its price class capable of processing such high input levels. Thanks to digital signal
processing, the R&S CMA180 delivers extremely precise measurement results and is ideal for testing software
For high precision power measurements, Rohde & Schwarz offers optional extremely linear power sensors that can
also be used with the R&S CMA180.
The R&S CMA180 radio test set is now available from Rohde & Schwarz. For details, go to
