Digital Spectrum Analyzer and Signal Generator

New FSW85 Signal and Spectrum Analyser from Rohde & Schwarz

Published: 10th July 2015

Rohde & Schwarz have introduced a new model to its FSW range, capable of analysing broadband and pulsed signals up to 85 GHz.

The FSW85 is perfectly suited for demanding research and development applications in fields such as automotive radar, 5G/other wireless standards and aerospace/defence.

It’s the only analyser currently on the market which can cover the frequency range from 2 Hz to 85 GHz in a single sweep, making it possible for you to test baseband and RF with a single analyser.

The FSW85 can be optionally equipped with an internal analysis bandwidth of 500 MHz, giving developers of radar components a variety of analysis options. It can even achieve an analysis bandwidth of 2 GHz, when combined with the FSW-B2000 option and an RTO oscilloscope.

Key Features:

  • Frequency range from 2 Hz to 85 GHz (with external harmonic mixers from Rohde & Schwarz up to 110 GHz)
  • Low phase noise of –137 dBc (1 Hz) at 10 kHz offset (1 GHz carrier)
  • –88 dBc dynamic range (with noise cancellation) for WCDMA ACLR measurements
  • Up to 2 GHz analysis bandwidth
  • < 0.4 dB total measurement uncertainty up to 8 GHz
  • Real-time analysis up to 160 MHz bandwidth
  • High-resolution 12.1" (31 cm) touchscreen
  • Multiple measurement applications can be run and displayed in parallel

Real-Time vs. Sampling Oscilloscopes: What Are the Differences?

All modern oscilloscopes are categorized as digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) which digitally sample, store, and display a signal to the user - but the technique for accomplishing this can vary from one scope to another. Two distinct categories you’ve probably heard about are real-time scopes and sampling scopes, each of which have advantages for specific applications. Understanding the differences between these two instruments can help determine which one is right for your use case.
