R&S Spectrum Analyzer Now Provides 5 GHz Signal Analysis Bandwidth

Rohde & Schwarz has announced that its R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer now provides 5 GHz of analysis bandwidth, which is required for analyzing wideband signals such as automotive radar FMCW chirp signals, IEEE 802.11ay signals and 5G waveform candidates.

Rohde & Schwarz is addressing the fast-growing demands for characterizing wideband components and systems by introducing the new R&S FSW-B5000 option. In combination with the R&S RTO2064 digital oscilloscope as an external digitizer, the R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer equipped with the new hardware option provides equalized 5 GHz signal analysis bandwidth.

The amplitude and phase response of the R&S FSW85 together with the R&S FSW-B5000 are fully characterized at the factory across the entire frequency range. The amplitude and phase measurement accuracy are guaranteed throughout the measurement bandwidth. The R&S FSW-B5000 supports center frequencies between 9.5 GHz and 90 GHz. For frequencies above 85 GHz, the R&S FSW85 needs to be equipped with the R&S FSW-B90G option, which extends the frequency range up to 90 GHz.

The transient and pulse measurement applications for the R&S FSW allow in-depth, wideband analysis of FMCW chirp signals and hopped and pulsed radar signals required for automotive radar applications. The R&S FSW-B5000 option also makes it possible to capture IEEE 802.11ay wideband signals for postprocessing and to perform measurements on waveform candidates for the future 5G standard.

The R&S FSW-B5000 option for the R&S FSW85 high-end signal and spectrum analyzer is now available from Rohde & Schwarz. It will be demonstrated for the first time to the public from September 11 to 13, 2017, at EDI CON in Boston, MA. For more information on the product, click here.
