R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator

Generating signals for today and tomorrow

Key facts

  • Support of 3GPP LTE FDD and TDD, LTE-Advanced, 3GPP FDD/HSPA/HSPA+, GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, and all other important digital standards
  • Fully fledged GNSS simulator with GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS/SBAS

Brief description

The R&S®SMBV100A offers excellent RF performance along with very high output level and short setting times. At the same time, the R&S®SMBV100A can be equipped with an internal baseband generator to allow generation of a number of digital standards (e.g. LTE, LTE-Advanced, IEEE802.11ac, GNSS).

Brief description

The R&S®SMBV100A offers excellent RF performance along with very high output level and short setting times. At the same time, the R&S®SMBV100A can be equipped with an internal baseband generator to allow generation of a number of digital standards (e.g.LTE, LTE-Advanced, IEEE802.11ac, GNSS). The wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz covers all of the important bands for digital modulation.
