Testing a 24-28 GHz Power Amplifier Using the 5G New Radio Test Standard

by Tudor Williams, Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult; Darren Tipton & Florian Ramian, Rohde & Schwarz Challenges and Results An ever-increasing requirement for data on mobile networks, driven by a myriad of applications from HD video on the move to autonomous vehicles and Industrial IOT, means a part of the new 5G network is to be […]

Two-Quadrant Power Supply Series

Thanks to their high accuracy and fast load recovery time, the R&S NGL200 power supplies are perfect for challenging applications in mobile communications and the IoT. Their two-quadrant architecture allows them to function both as a source and a sink, and short recovery times allow them to handle fast load changes. ROHDE & SCHWARZ (79)

Two Port Model Added to Analyzer Line

The company has expanded its handheld R&S Cable Rider ZPH cable and antenna analyzer portfolio with a two-port model that supports network infrastructure manufacturers and network operators even more efficiently in installing and maintaining the growing number of mobile communications antenna systems. Thanks to its two-port architecture, the new model now provides transmission measurements (S21) […]

Integrated Signaling Test Solution

The R&S CMX500 radio communication tester adds 5G NR signaling and RF testing to existing R&S CMW500 based LTE T&M solutions in labs. It measures the RF parameters of 5G NR transmissions and performs protocol tests. The tester has a modular design and a state-of-the-art web based user interface.  ROHDE & SCHWARZ (64)

WLAN 2×2 MIMO Signaling Tester

A new test solution has been introduced for WLAN 2×2 MIMO stations in line with the IEEE 802.11ax standard. Using the R&S CMW270 wireless connectivity tester, developers can test the RF characteristics of both transmitters and receivers, allowing them to determine the data throughput in the transmit and receive directions.

High-End Vector Network Analyzer

The R&S ZNA is a new generation of high-end vector network analyzers offering outstanding RF performance and a unique hardware concept that simplifies measurement configuration. Its excellent measurement stability and trace noise enable users to perform demanding measurements on active and passive components and modules. Thanks to its innovative, DUT-centric approach, the world’s first purely […]

Automotive Radome Tester

Automotive radars are often located behind bumpers and brand emblems. The materials of these covers (radomes) should allow the radar signals to pass through as uniformly and unhindered as possible. With the imaging R&S QAR automotive radome tester, users in development and production environments can now check this easily, reliably, and under automated control.  ROHDE […]

Rohde & Schwarz, iBwave and Anokiwave Partner to Showcase Indoor 5G NR Network

As part of the 5G Expert Days at the Rohde & Schwarz headquarters in Munich, Germany, the three companies have planned, implemented and measured an indoor 5G NR network. The network was created on an experimental frequency license for mmWave at 26 GHz. While 5G NR pre-commercial trials are currently ongoing in several countries mostly […]

Modular RF Switch and Control Platform

Hardware and software have been completely revised for the new generation of the R&S OSP open switch and control platform. It is now optimized for more modules and even shorter switching times. It allows users to combine a wide variety of switch and control modules to form a cost-effective, customized control center for their test […]

Handheld Microwave Spectrum Analyzers

The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH family has been expanded with three new base models providing frequency ranges from 5 kHz to 6 GHz, 13.6 GHz, and 26.5 GHz. These higher-frequency models enable the rugged R&S Spectrum Rider FPH to perform a vast range of measurement tasks in the field and lab. In combination with a […]
