    The cost pressure within the fiercely competitive consumer electronics market is enormous. The focus on material and development costs is accompanied by the growing importance of cost-optimized production. And this is where the advantages of the R&S®SFE100 truly become apparent: With its integrated baseband generator and power amplifier, the R&S®SFE100 combines three instruments in one. This not only translates into lower procurement and operating costs. It also increases reliability and simplifies maintenance – which all adds up to more efficient production.

  • Remote compatibility eliminates duplicated effort

    Not only are sales prices for consumer electronic equipment falling steadily – innovation cycles are also becoming ever shorter. The time window available between the start of product development and the start of series production is becoming tighter and tighter. This makes it all the more important to be able to transfer results from development quickly and easily to production. R&S®SFU, R&S®SFE, and R&S®SFE100 broadcast signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz provide a valuable contribution: They are designed with optimum compatibility in mind. Test scenarios as well as remote-control programs from development can be transferred to production easily and smoothly.

  • Same look & and feel as the R&S®SFU and R&S®SFE

    Both the tried-and-true operating concept and the straightforward graphical user interface of the R&S®SFU and R&S®SFE are largely the same in the R&S®SFE100. Customers who are already familiar with the R&S®SFU or R&S®SFE will be able to operate the R&S®SFE100 immediately and without any additional training. This makes switching between the R&S®SFU, R&S®SFE, and R&S®SFE100 easy and effortless.
