R&S Hosts RF Design Challenge; Demos Sub-THz/6G Front End

June 1, 2023
Are you an RF genius? Find out at Rohde & Schwarz’s IMS 2023 booth and catch demos of numerous test products.

This article is part of our IMS 2023 coverage.

At IMS 2023 Booth 735, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase multiple live demos of cutting-edge test and measurement developments. IMS attendees can also participate in the interactive "Are you a genius?" RF Design challenge, putting their knowledge to the test through a series of lab challenges that evaluate an attendee’s knowledge of S-parameters, EVM, high power, and baseband measurements.

In addition to the RF Design Challenge, Rohde & Schwarz will highlight multiple demonstrations at the company’s booth. These include the new 67-GHz noise-figure measurement capability that further enhances the R&S ZNA vector network analyzer for full characterization of amplifiers and converters.

On the road to 6G, revolutionary technologies demand new ways of testing for the next generation of wireless communication. Several highlights at the Rohde & Schwarz booth are the latest solutions for early sub-terahertz and 6G research applications. The R&S FE170ST external front ends (see image above) extend the frequency ranges not only of the company’s signal and spectrum analyzers, but also of its signal generators up to the D-band (110 to 170 GHz), enabling engineers to access the range they need to develop the next generation of mobile communications. In addition, demonstrations of both the R&S ZNA vector network analyzers and the R&S FSWP phase-noise analyzer will highlight 6G D-band system and component characterization.

Also on display is the R&S ATS1800C CATR-based, 5G/6G mmWave over-the-air (OTA) test chamber, which provides a suitable environment for testing antennas, modules, and devices from R&D to conformance. When equipped with the two side-chamber extensions, the chamber forms a 3D quiet zone, within which the test solution supports very-small-footprint RRM measurements, including multiple angles of arrival (AoA).
