Source Generates Test Signals to 7.125 GHz

Aug. 24, 2020
This test signal source combines analog and digital hardware with software control for signal-generating flexibility to 7.125 GHz.

For test signals to 7.125 GHz, this software-defined source provides the programmability needed to generate a wide range of waveforms. The model R&S SMCV100B vector signal generator (VSG) from Rohde & Schwarz is available in three versions with various options and frequency ranges of 4 kHz to 3, 6, or 7.125 GHz. Suitable for navigation measurements as well as automotive and broadcast testing, it shows operating details on a 5-in. diagonal touchscreen, generating signals with modulation bandwidths as wide as 240 MHz and output levels as high as +25 dBm to 7.125 GHz. For signals to 200 MHz, it has settling time of 5 ms or less to within 20 Hz of the final frequency and settling time of 1 × 10-7 s to within 20 Hz of signal frequencies above 200 MHz. Harmonics are better than -30 dBc while spurious levels are better than -55 dBc. Single-sideband (SSB) phase noise is -100 dBc/Hz offset 20 kHz from 2.5 GHz and -95 dBc/Hz offset 20 kHz from 7.125 GHz.
