The new FSW85 high-end signal and spectrum analyser from Rohde & Schwarz covers the frequency range from 2Hz to 85GHz in a single sweep. This makes it possible for users to test baseband and RF with a single analyser. Since no external harmonic mixers are required, the analyser makes the test setup much simpler.
An internal preselection suppresses the image frequency and other spurious emissions that commonly occur during harmonic mixing.
The instrument can be optionally equipped with an internal analysis bandwidth of 500MHz, giving developers of radar components a variety of analysis options ‒ particularly for automotive and aerospace and defence applications.
When combined with the R&S FSW-B2000 option and an R&S RTO oscilloscope, it is even possible to achieve an analysis bandwidth of 2GHz, allowing developers to analyse broadband signals for 5G next-generation mobile communications signals or complex pulse parameters and chirp signals for radar systems.
The analyser offers easy touchscreen operation with clear diagrams and a flat menu structure. Various measurements can be displayed simultaneously in separate windows on the large 31 cm screen to simplify interpretation of results.
The new signal and spectrum analyser is now available and it will be demonstrated at European Microwave Week 2015 in Paris (September 6-11).
