R&S FSV3000 and FSVA3000 spectrum analysers

Friday, 26 April, 2019 | Supplied by: Rohde & Schwarz (Australia) Pty Ltd



Rohde & Schwarz has launched two signal and spectrum analysers, the R&S FSV3000 and R&S FSVA3000, with different frequency models covering up to 44 GHz. Designed for high-speed performance in automated test systems, both devices interact with cloud-based processing.

The R&S FSV3000 is designed to help users set up complex measurements quickly and easily, with its high usability and measurement speed making it suitable for labs and production lines. It provides up to 200 MHz analysis bandwidth — enough to capture and analyse two 5G NR carriers at once.

The R&S FSVA3000, with up to 400 MHz analysis bandwidth, high dynamic range and phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz, meanwhile enables users to perform demanding measurement applications such as linearising power amplifiers, capturing short events and characterising frequency agile signals.

Both devices can measure EVM values better than 1% for a 100 MHz signal at 28 GHz. Together with the coverage of the 5G NR frequency bands up to 44 GHz, this makes them suitable for analysing 5G NR signals.

The spectrum analysers are designed to simplify troubleshooting rare events and set up complex measurements. With the event-based action GUI, whenever a predetermined event occurs the corresponding action, such as saving a screenshot or I/Q data, is performed.

Auto-measurements shorten the set-up time of the instrument itself. At the press of a button, parameters such as centre frequency, span and amplitude reference are automatically set based on the applied signal and, in the case of a pulse signal, the gate sweep parameters are set. For standard-compliant measurements, the auto-measurement feature selects the corresponding standard parameter table.

In scenarios with automated production lines with complex measurements, external computers can take over the control of the instruments via SCPI commands. The embedded SCPI recorder makes it easy to create executable scripts, since all manual input is translated into plain SCPI or into the syntax of common programming languages or tools.

The analysers provide a smart signal generator control that assists in RF measurement set-ups containing a signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz. Changes in the analyser settings are directly taken over by the generator, and the analyser can display the user interface of the generator so that users can operate the complete set-up from one screen.
