Rohde & Schwarz adds analogue baseband inputs to FSW signal and spectrum analyser

April 15, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Rohde & Schwarz has upgraded its R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer with a new option to include analogue baseband inputs covering a bandwidth of 80 MHz for I and Q signals.

This makes it the only signal and spectrum analyser on the market that can analyse signals with up to 160 MHz bandwidth in the baseband. The new feature will be particularly usefuk for developers of transmitter modules for complex signals such as WLAN IEEE 802.11ac and LTE, if different chipsets are used to generate the baseband signal and convert it to the RF. With the new option, the R&S FSW now makes it possible to test the signal in the baseband prior to its conversion to the RF, allowing developers to characterise the entire signal chain using a single device. The R&S FSW-B71 option for analogue baseband inputs is available now.
