Spectrum analyzer has guaranteed specs 5GHz analysis bandwidth

September 11, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyzer now provides 5 GHz analysis bandwidth, which is required for analyzing wideband signals such as automotive radar FMCW chirp signals, IEEE 802.11ay signals and 5G waveform candidates.

Rohde & Schwarz' new R&S FSW-B5000 option for its R&S FSW85 signal and spectrum analyser, which in combination with the R&S RTO2064 digital oscilloscope as an external digitizer provides an equalized 5GHz signal analysis bandwidth.
The amplitude and phase response of the R&S FSW85 together with the R&S FSW-B5000 are fully characterized at the factory across the entire frequency range. The amplitude and phase measurement accuracy are guaranteed throughout the measurement bandwidth. The R&S FSW-B5000 supports centre frequencies between 9.5 GHz and 90 GHz. For frequencies above 85 GHz, the R&S FSW85 needs to be equipped with the R&S FSW-B90G option, which extends the frequency range up to 90 GHz.
The transient and pulse measurement applications for the R&S FSW allow in-depth, wideband analysis of FMCW chirp signals and hopped and pulsed radar signals required for automotive radar applications. The R&S FSW-B5000 option also makes it possible to capture IEEE 802.11ay wideband signals for postprocessing and to perform measurements on waveform candidates for the future 5G standard.
