Rohde and Scharz FSW67

Rohde & Schwarz FSW Signal and Spectrum Analyser now with 500 MHz analysis bandwidth

Published: 16th January 2014

Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the analysis bandwidth for its R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analysers, making it the first company to offer analysis bandwidth of 500 MHz

The new FSW-B500 hardware option is now available for all the FSW family of analysers and can be used for measurements in a frequency range up to 67 GHz. The FSW is ideal for sophisticated measurement tasks in radar or satellite applications as well as for tests on fast wireless connections such as WLAN or Beyond 4G (5G).

With this large analysis bandwidth you can test pulse rise and fall times from approximately 3 ns or very short pulses from an 8 ns pulse width. The analyser can therefore be used in the development of radar systems for automotive applications, for example.

You can fully record and measure radar chirps with up to 500 MHz bandwidth. Hopping sequences in frequency-agile communications systems such as tactical radios can also be analysed easily. Researchers working on satellite applications will be able to characterize the components for the future transponder generation with up to 500 MHz analysis bandwidth. Components for microwave links can also be measured with up to 500 MHz bandwidth.

The FSW now offers developers of RF amplifiers for mobile radio or WLAN the ability to measure digital predistortion of amplifiers with up to 160 MHz bandwidth, as required for WLAN 802.11ac signals, for example. In the past, measuring these kinds of wideband signals often required complicated setups consisting of a digital oscilloscope and a downconverter.
