The most easy and accurate way of testing Bluetooth® Low Energy: - Simplifying the test setup - Unifying all Bluetooth® testing (Bluetooth® Classic and Bluetooth® Low Energy) - Supporting all RF conformance tests - Simplifying OTA measurements (TRP/TIS) - Enabling bit rate and packet error rate measurements
Timesaving functions with ESW EMI test receiver
The Rohde & Schwarz ESW is an EMI test receiver with outstanding RF characteristics for the measuring range from 1Hz to 44GHz. With its high dynamic range und measurement accuracy, it meets the highest requirements in EMI compliance testing and fulfils the most stringent requirements for all relevant EMI standards such as CISPR, EN, MIL‑STD-461, DO‑160 and FCC.
Test bench with full-surface coverage of radomes
In late 2019, Löhnert Elektronik, a specialist in custom test benches, was looking for a reliable automotive radome tester for its new test bench and chose the R&S QAR quality automotive radome tester from T&M manufacturer Rohde & Schwarz. The R&S QAR is presently the only tester on the market that can test these radomes quickly and over their full surface area.
Wideband I/Q data recorder enables field-to-lab tests
For the users of an R&S FSV signal and spectrum analyser, and an R&S SMBV100A or R&S SGT100A vector signal generator, field-to-lab test scenarios are now possible with the R&S IQW100, a wideband I/Q data recorder. Typical applications for the R&S IQW100 are signals for cellular communication, EME, GNSS, or radio or TV broadcast.
Wake up signal test for efficiency in NB-IoT devices
Rohde & Schwarz and the cellular IoT company CommSolid by Goodix have partnered up to demonstrate the effectiveness of the NB-IoT Release 15 feature wake up signal in reducing the power consumption of NB-IoT devices.
Duo collaborate on wake up signal test
Test and measurement supplier Rohde & Schwarz and the cellular IoT company CommSolid by Goodix have partnered to demonstrate the effectiveness of the NB-IoT Release 15 feature wake up signal in reducing the power consumption of NB-IoT devices.
Conformance test solution for 5G NR FR2 unveiled
A test solution able to perform the first tests for RF conformance in 3GPP FR2 has been launched by Rohde & Schwarz.
Enabling sub-THz ultra-wideband signal analysis
Developments in mobile technology are moving constantly towards increasing bandwidths, enabling increasingly high data throughput. The Rohde & Schwarz setup represents some of the first research exploring data transmission at sub-THz frequencies featuring ultra-wide bandwidths signal analysis.
Testing automotive electronics at EMV 2020
Under the slogan ‘Accelerate Design. Maximise Performance’, Rohde & Schwarz will present its comprehensive portfolio of EMC test and measurement equipment at EMV 2020 in Cologne on March 17th to 19th, 2020. At Booth 112 in Hall 10.2, Rohde & Schwarz will focus among others on test solutions for the automotive industry.
Verifying dynamic spectrum sharing for 5G NR
Almost all initial 5G NR FR1 deployments are based on time division duplex (TDD), with unpaired frequency bands typically in the 3.5GHz frequency range. However, about 90% of all spectrum below six gigahertz is organised as paired frequency bands, using frequency division duplex (FDD), where downlink and uplink use different frequencies. At the moment, these frequency bands are already in use by 4G LTE.
Automated EMC test system for both 5G frequency ranges
The R&S TS8996 RSE test system covers the entire 5G FR1 and FR2 frequency ranges for radiated spurious emission (RSE) measurements. The automated test system measures spurious emissions from 5G components and devices during development and compliance tests, and along with RSE measurements it performs the required EMI tests.
Efficient power supplies with four independent channels
For any test and measurement application requiring up to four independent channels for DC power supplies with full flexibility, full functionality, full safety and full connectivity, the R&S NGP800 power supply series will boost the efficiency in any lab or production line. Users benefit from the large five inch, high resolution touch screen, which also displays detailed statistics.
Test solutions for BLE up to version 5.2
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) adopted the first specifications for BLE 5.2 at the end of 2019. This initially concerns the new power control functions. Rohde & Schwarz has already integrated specified tests into the Bluetooth test software of its wireless testers in the R&S CMW platform.
Developing T&M capabilities for ultra-wideband tech
Rohde & Schwarz and Decawave have jointly developed test and measurement capabilites for production line testing of UWB functions in chipsets and complete devices. As part of the cooperation, Decawave provided knowledge of the required test strategy and test methods, as well as the Decawave DW3000 as test device.
Tethering transparency detects unauthorised NATs
The new software plug-in enables mobile network operators and IT security administrators to detect unauthorised NAT devices in a network in order to uncover mobile tethering fraud and prevent cyber attacks.
Collaboration to minimise field testing for IoT modules
Rohde & Schwarz and Gemalto, a Thales company, have announced that they are working on significantly reducing expensive and time-consuming field testing for IoT. IoT protocol stack features have been specified by 3GPP, but IoT devices have to interact with different network configurations worldwide.
5G site testing solution for gNodeB site acceptance
A 5G Site Testing Solution must test new capabilities, such as beamforming and 5G/LTE dual connectivity, to verify the correct installation and performance and to ensure that the required quality of service (QoS) is delivered to end users.
Analytics solution supports 5G rollout
ipoque, a Rohde & Schwarz company, has announced that a feature upgrade of their telco analytics solution R&S INTRA now allows efficient monitoring and traffic analytics of networks adopting 5G non-standalone mode (5G NSA). The new feature was requested by a mobile network operator (MNO) in order to be able to roll out their 5G adoption strategy.
SaaS platform for RF testing software applications
R&S Cloud4Testing is an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering from Rohde & Schwarz. The platform is accessible with a browser without having to install any additional software or plugins. The first cloud ready signal analysis tool is the R&S VSE vector signal explorer software that brings the experience and power of signal analysis directly to the user’s desktop.
5G conformance tests with radio resource management
The Global Certification Forum GCF and PTCRB certification organisation have accepted first test case validations in various FR1 and LTE band combinations using the new Rohde & Schwarz R&S TS RRM 5G radio resource management (RRM) conformance test system. The solution is the latest addition to a successful family of RRM conformance test systems.
