Rohde & Schwarz (Munich, Germany) has expanded the frequency range of its R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator to 20 GHz. The R&S SMW200A is the only instrument on the market to combine a baseband generator, RF generator and fading simulator in a single box. In addition, the R&S SMW200A can be equipped with a second 20 GHz path, making it possible to simultaneously generate up to two wideband microwave signals with any type of modulation. For these types of complex setups, other solutions require at least three devices and considerably more effort for settings, synchronization and cabling. Features include:
- Combination of 6 GHz and a 20 GHz path in a single box.
- Allows users to quickly and easily perform the receiver and performance tests required by many telecommunications standards.
- Delivers phase-coherent signals for testing phased array antennas, for example.
