Remote Control and Instrument Drivers

Remote control of Rohde & Schwarz test and measurement devices, including the vector network analyzers, is fully supported. The automation of measurement tasks using programming or scripting languages helps to reduce measurement time. Programming examples and instrument drivers provide an easy support for those taking their first steps in programming, as well as for more advanced users.


How can I use the vector analyzer (VNA) automation software suite?

The R&S®ZNrun is a software solution for fully automated measurements with R&S® Vector Network Analyzers.

R&S®ZNrun test automation software suite controls R&S VNA’s and executes tests in an automated, easy and fast way. R&S®ZNrun allows significant saving in time and costs, e.g in production scenarios.

With R&S®ZNrun you can define, configure and execute automated tests. In addition, R&S®ZNrun visualizes results and generates test reports.

R&S®ZNrun supports all R&S®VNA’s and also external equipment used in your test set-up. It offers a programmable interface, which is used to control additional external equipment’s, e.g. handlers, barcode scanners or the Device under test (DUT) itself. The automation software suite is also easy to adapt to different customer environments and requirements and can be integrated into existing test flows in production.

How can I use the VNA simulation software?

R&S®ZNXSIM simulation software provides R&S Vector Network Analyzer functionalities on your computer without the need of a dedicated VNA hardware (HW).

Based on S-parameter measurements you load into to the R&S®ZNXSIM software, the complete R&S VNA feature set is available. Every analysis, mathematical operation and post processing of your measurements can be done on your computer, anytime, anywhere.

In addition, Time Domain Analysis is available as well. The option R&S®ZNXSIM-K22 activates time domain analysis on the simulation package and provides analysis features like Time Gating or Eye Diagram analysis.

Another use case is the test of remote-control programs, which use R&S VNA models. In this case the R&S®ZNXSIM software acts as R&S VNA and you can test and verify whether your remote-control program works without errors. The presence of a VNA is not required anymore thus saving time and ensuring quality.

Furthermore, in an additional use case you can learn in detail the VNA functionalities and operate the VNA without having an access to the real VNA hardware.

Which equipment can be controlled by R&S®ZNrun automation software?

R&S®ZNrun can control all R&S Vector Network Analyzers and dedicated switch matrices or calibration units.

R&S®ZNrun supports in addition a programmable plugin interface. Via this plugin interface DUT and external equipment like barcode scanner or handler are controlled and integrated in the complete test flow.

Which R&S Vector Network Analyzer models are supported by R&S®ZNXSIM simulation software?

R&S®ZNXSIM does support R&S®ZNA, R&S®ZNBT, R&S®ZNB and R&S®ZND.

R&S®ZNXSIM-K1 enables the simulation of R&S®ZNB, R&S®ZNBT and R&S®ZND. R&S®ZNXSIM-K2 enables the simulation of R&S®ZNA. Additionally, in order to activate the time domain analysis on the simulation, the option R&S®ZNXSIM-K22 should be installed.
