Munich, Germany — Rohde & Schwarz has added two additional combined signal and spectrum analyzers, designated FSV13 and FSV30, to its FSV family: one up to 13.6 GHz and one up to 30 GHz. Benefits include fast measurement speed and easy operation via a touch screen as well as high sensitivity and large-signal immunity.
For spurious emissions up to 12.75 GHz in wireless communications equipment and systems, as well as in higher frequency ranges as is the case with satellites or military systems, sensitivity requirements are very stringent. A low displayed average noise level (DANL) yields measurement results that are more accurate because the signal-to-noise ratio is greater. Featuring a DANL of less than -148 dBm (1 Hz) at 13 GHz and less than -144 dBm (1 Hz) at 30 GHz as well as a third order intercept of 15 dBm, the FSV13 and FSV30 can hold their own even alongside high-end instruments.
In addition, due to a unique high sweep speed, the FSV performs measurements significantly faster than comparable instruments. This holds true especially when a narrow measurement bandwidth is used.
For users from the aerospace and defense sector, the FSV instruments offer a removable hard drive and USB interfaces that can be deactivated. Consequently, sensitive data from high-security areas can be kept safe. Further, by making the FSV compatible with legacy instruments, the company meets the requirement of keeping test systems in service for decades to come.
Like all instruments of the FSV family, the FSV13 and FSV30 support all current mobile radio and wireless standards through software applications. An analysis bandwidth of 40 MHz makes even WLAN 802.11n no problem. A measurement demodulator for AM, FM or FM demodulators plus the support of the company's power sensors are also important features for development and production. Moreover, both models offer a touch screen, an on-screen keyboard and an expanded control panel.
