To analyze wideband signals for 5G NR and other future wireless standards, a wide analysis bandwidth is key. Rohde & Schwarz brings an exceptional internal analysis bandwidth of 1 GHz to its mid-range R&S FSVA3000 signal and spectrum analyzer.
Manufacturers of future cellular and wireless systems, infrastructure and amplifiers can now profit from a wideband signal test solution that was previously available only in high-end instruments. Rohde & Schwarz has added an unparalleled internal analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz to its R&S FSVA3000 mid-range signal and spectrum analyzer. The new R&S FSV3-B1000 hardware option is available for all models from 7.5 GHz to 44 GHz, while comparable solutions offer just 160 MHz analysis bandwidth.
R&S FSVA3000 supports manufacturers in the development and production of 5G NR base stations, mobile phones and components, especially in the 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands, while meeting tight time-to-market requirements. In combination with the supported 5G NR downlink and uplink measurement options, this makes the R&S FSVA3000 an easy to set up solution for analyzing 5G NR signals with several component carriers. The instrument, which also addresses users in Aerospace & Defense and automotive applications, can also characterize wideband amplifiers or can be used for troubleshooting, capturing even short events.
The R&S FSVA3000, which comes with an advanced auto-set feature allowing the quick configuration of frequently performed measurements, now offers sufficient bandwidth for SEM and ACLR measurements of wideband signals also in I/Q mode. The analyzer’s outstanding RF performance allows capturing and pre-distorting for instance, a 200 MHz wide signal and measure the effects of distortion up to the fifth harmonic. The R&S FSVA3000 also supports measurement of the short rise and fall times (down to 1 ns system rise time) and detection of ultrashort pulses. This allows the analysis of frequency-agile signals within 1 GHz as used in radar and tactical radio.
