R&S SMW200A high-performance vector signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz (Raleigh, NC) enables faster time-to-market, improves end-device quality, and exceeds important 2G, 3G and 4G digital standards and applications. Featuring versatile configuration options, the range of applications extends from single-path vector signal generation to multichannel MIMO receiver testing. The R&S SMW200A vector signal generator is the only product on the market that provides a baseband generator, RF generator and real-time MIMO fading simulator in a single instrument.

Exceptional modulation and RF characteristics make it ideal for developing high-end components, modules and complete products for wideband communications systems such as LTE-Advanced and WLAN IEEE 802.11ac. The generator performs especially well in verification of 3G and 4G base stations, as well as aerospace and defense applications. Features include:

  • A frequency range of 100 kHz to 3 GHz or 6 GHz.
  • I/Q modulation bandwidth of 160 MHz with internal baseband.
  • Optional second RF path for frequencies up to 6 GHZ.
  • Maximum of two baseband and four fading simulator modules, giving users two full-featured vector signal generators in a single unit.
