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 ...

Munich, February 19, 2015 -- Rohde & Schwarz presents its new R&S NRPxxS and R&S NRPxxSN USB three-path diode power sensors. The completely redesigned sensors offer unprecedented measurement speed and measurement accuracy, even at low levels. The R&S NRPxxSN model offers both a USB and a LAN interface. Both power sensor models are available for three different frequency ranges, from 10 MHz to 8 GHz, to 18 GHz and to 33 GHz - the largest choice of ranges on the market.
Outstanding measurement speed
The R&S NRPxxS/SN sensors enable 10 000 triggered measurements per second with a minimum trigger resolution of 100 µs. A special mode even permits in excess of 50 000 equidistant measurements per second. And the improved three-path diode design made it possible to decrease the lower measurement limit to -70 dBm. The result is a very wide dynamic range of 93 dB and instruments that can measure up to four times faster than previous solutions, especially at low levels.
LAN operation via web browser
The new LAN interface on the R&S NRPxxSN model now allows remote power measurements over large distances. For example, it is possible to control monitoring applications for satellite systems or particle accelerators via a central PC by placing sensors at various positions in the system. The power sensor is conveniently controlled from a GUI accessed via web browser. No additional software is needed.
Numerous test modes for a wide variety of applications Thanks to their outstanding performance, R&S NRPxxS/SN power sensors help mobile communications users perform power measurements on signals such as GSM, 3GPP, LTE and LTE-Advanced. The 33 GHz model is also ideal for development and production of anticollision radar systems in the automotive sector. The continuous average, burst average, timeslot average, gate average and trace measurement test modes all remain available.
The new R&S NRP8S, R&S NRP18S and R&S NRP33S USB three-path diode sensors and the R&S NRP8SN, R&S NRP18SN and R&S NRP33SN USB/LAN diode sensors are now available from Rohde & Schwarz. For more information, visit www.rohde-schwarz.com/ad/press/powersensors
