Rohde & Schwarz have revealed that the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer has been upgraded with a new Enhanced Dynamic Front End.
The R&S FSW is one of Rohde & Schwarz’s most popular solutions for signal and spectrum analysis. The R&S FSW has continuously evolved since its launch, with frequency, bandwidth, modulation, sensitivity, and streaming requirements becoming more demanding.
Its new front end continues the path of innovation with error vector magnitude (EVM) measurement accuracy for wideband modulated signals in the mmWave range. This makes the solution ideal for testing any high-end communication component or systems, including 5G NR FR2 or IEEE 802.11ay / ad chipsets, amplifiers, user equipment and base stations.
EVM measurements are currently in “high demand” for 5G base stations and component development at FR2 frequencies as well as for high-frequency satellite applications, say Rohde & Schwarz. The latest enhancements to the modified front end of the R&S FSW, as well as the microwave hardware optimized for frequencies above 26 GHz, provide increased accuracy.
Featuring a wide internal analysis bandwidth which allows the characterization of wideband components and communications systems; the R&S FSW’s measurement applications simplify and speed up in-depth analysis of the physical layer, allowing testing at higher frequencies and wider measurement bandwidths. Users can cover all the physical layer options specified in the standard with the best RF performance Rohde & Schwarz has to offer.
With the new R&S FSW-B24U Enhanced Dynamic Front End (EDFE) upgrade of the R&S FSW, Rohde & Schwarz addresses the requirements for EVM performance in the mmWave range. Newly produced R&S FSW43, R&S FSW50 and R&S FSW67 models will now ship with the enhancements as standard. The R&S FSW-B24U can also be ordered as an upgrade to many R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzers already in use.
