RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

The new phase noise analyzer and VCO tester from Rohde & Schwarz enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements. The R&S FSWP also allows users to very easily measure pulsed sources and residual phase noise of RF components. Plus the instrument can be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer.
Munich, May 19, 2015 -- With the new R&S FSWP phase noise tester, users can measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) more quickly than with any other solution. The high-end instrument covers a frequency range up to 50 GHz and offers a top dynamic range. The extremely low phase noise of its local oscillator coupled with cross-correlation even makes it possible to easily measure signal sources that in the past required complex test setups or could not be measured at all.
Thanks to its fully digital signal processing, the R&S FSWP performs complex measurements at the push of a button and features intuitive touchscreen operation. It can quickly and easily measure the phase noise of pulsed sources as well as residual phase noise under pulsed conditions. The R&S FSWP is therefore ideal for both aerospace and defense and automotive applications, e.g. for manufacturers of radar components and synthesizers. Thanks to its additional voltage sources, the R&S FSWP is also ideal for measuring VCOs ? in research and development and, thanks to its high measurement speed, also in production.
The R&S FSWP can be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer. Rohde & Schwarz is still the only manufacturer to offer the combination of both measurement solutions in a single device, like its predecessor model, the R&S FSUP.
Rohde & Schwarz will be offering an exclusive preview of the new R&S FSWP phase noise and VCO tester at IMS 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona at booth 3446. The R&S FSWP8 and R&S FSWP26 models for the 8 and 26 GHz frequency ranges will be available from Rohde & Schwarz in late summer 2015; the R&S FSWP50 model for up to 50 GHz in fall 2015.
