Rohde & Schwarz has added an internal analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz to its R&S FSVA3000 mid-range signal and spectrum analyzer. The 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. The 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.
The supported 5G NR downlink and uplink measurement options makes the R&S FSVA3000 a 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 very short events.
The R&S FSVA3000 comes with an advanced autoset feature to allow quick configuration of frequently-performed measurements, with sufficient bandwidth for SEM and ACLR measurements of wideband signals also in I/Q mode. The analyzer’s RF performance allows capturing and predistorting, for instance using a 200 MHz wide signal, measuring the effects of distortion up to the fifth harmonic. The R&S FSVA3000 also supports measurement of short rise and fall times (down to 1 ns system rise time) and detection of ultrashort pulses, allowing analysis of frequency-agile signals within 1 GHz, as used in radar and tactical radio.
