The highly sophisticated certification and R&D measurements required in the A&D and automotive
sectors call for an EMI test receiver with outstanding characteristics. Rohde & Schwarz is presenting
its new R&S ESW EMI test receiver for these types of measurements at the EMV 2016 exhibition in
Düsseldorf. The new test receiver offers the widest dynamic range and highest level accuracy on the
February 23, 2016 -- The
R&S ESW EMI test receiver from Rohde & Schwarz is designed for applications
in manufacturers' EMI labs and in test houses. It can carry out certification tests on modules, components
and devices as well as on systems and technical facilities in line with all relevant commercial and
military standards such as CISPR, FCC and military standards. The R&S ESW is ideal for conducted
as well as radiated certification measurements and even meets the stringent demands placed on EMI measurements
in the automotive sector stipulated by internal company standards.
The R&S ESW comes in three versions for the frequency ranges from 2 Hz to 8 GHz/26 GHz/44 GHz.
The instrument includes as standard an extremely fast FFT-based time domain scan (TD scan), which significantly
reduces the time required for standard-compliant certification tests. The TD scan can also be run with
two CISPR detectors to carry out parallel measurements. For diagnostics and troubleshooting, users can
take advantage of additional operating modes such as sweep, scan, real-time spectrum analysis and IF
analysis, each with a spectrogram function. The spectrogram function seamlessly displays the analyzed
spectrum versus time, making even rapidly changing interferers visible. Real-time spectrum analysis
with a bandwidth of 80 MHz, with tools such as persistence mode and a frequency mask trigger, delivers
important information on critical and hidden signals.
The R&S ESW offers additional highpass filters at 150 kHz and 2 MHz as well as notch filters
especially for the license-free ISM bands around 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz, which are used by wireless transmission
technologies such as Bluetooth™ and WLAN. Strong carrier signals in these bands can severely impact
the dynamic range of instruments during EMI field strength measurements, and minor interference signals
outside these bands can go undetected. With its additional filters for the ISM bands and exceptional
sensitivity, the R&S ESW overcomes this problem, delivering reliable EMI certification measurements.
The R&S ESW features easy touchscreen operation with an intuitive GUI and flat menu structures.
The multiview function lets users see all measurements and modes at a glance. The instrument also incorporates
a configurable auto test feature, which makes it possible to automate complex measurement processes.
This test configurator allows users to define parameters and criteria independently for preview measurements,
peak search and final measurements, using quasi-peak, CISPR-average, and RMS-average detectors. The
test report generator helps operators document all parameters required for certification directly after
measurements are taken. The instrument is equipped with two additional rotary knobs, each of which can
be assigned diverse test parameters, allowing a quick comparison of the effects of specific parameters
such as bandwidth, measurement time and attenuation during the measurement.
The new R&S ESW EMI test receiver is now available from Rohde & Schwarz. It will have its
first public demonstration at the EMV 2016 international exhibition in Düsseldorf from February 23 to
