The analyzer helps developers perform complex measurement tasks in the microwave range for aerospace & defense applications and wireless communications.

The FSW67 claims to be the only instrument on the market to cover the frequency range from 2 Hz to 67 GHz in a single sweep. It simplifies test setups and does away with external harmonic mixers — requiring no complex cabling. Image frequencies and other spurious emissions caused by harmonic mixing are suppressed.

Thanks to its analysis bandwidth of up to 320 MHz, the FSW67 also measures wideband, hopping and chirp signals. Until now, this required complicated test setups consisting of a digital oscilloscope and a downconverter, for example.

Users can now easily perform spectrum measurements and modulation measurements in the 60 GHz band. This makes the FSW67 ideal for the development, testing, verification and production of transmitters and components for radar applications, satellite and military communications systems. The analyzer also provides valuable assistance when performing development tasks relating to fast wireless communications based, for example, on WiGig (IEEE 802.11ad) or WirelessHD.

The FSW67’s integrated preamplifier up to 67 GHz makes it very sensitive even in this high frequency range. The smallest of spurious signals will be detected, and noise figures of components will be measured with high precision. Featuring a phase noise of -111 dBc (Hz) at 10 kHz offset from the carrier at 67 GHz, the analyzer offers a high dynamic range even for measurements close to the carrier. This keeps inherent instrument errors especially low during signal analysis. The FSW67 also provides high reproducibility of results.

The integrated multistandard radio analyzer (MSRA) measures spectrum and modulation parameters of signals with different modulations simultaneously, and also correlates these signals in time. With the MSRA function, users can efficiently analyze how and why different signals affect each other. The 12.1-inch (31 cm) touchscreen interface makes operation convenient, especially for complex measurement tasks. The MultiView function allows users to simultaneously display multiple measurements and applications.
