Passive components

Passive components include a large variety of building blocks for RF and digital designs. They range from RF filters and combiners, switches, couplers all the way to cables, connectors and PCB boards.

The network analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz offer the right range from S parameter measurements to time domain reflectometry looking for anomality on the signal path. The multiport solutions allow fast and cost-efficient multi-site production testing.

Determining current-voltage characteristics with the oscilloscope

Faulty components can be identified quickly by analyzing their current-voltage characteristics. A component tester is especially convenient for this purpose. The R&S®RTC1000 oscilloscopes offers a built-in component tester.

Precise measurements on high-speed digital signal lines with the R&S®ZNB
With continuously increasing data rates, signal integrity aspects of high-speed digital designs and the components used become more and more challenging. Particularly at higher data rates, vector network analyzers (VNA) are increasingly replacing traditional time domain reflectometry (TDR) setups for testing passive components such as connectors, cables, PCBs, etc. Users benefit from the higher accuracy, speed and ESD robustness of the VNA, making the VNA the instrument of choice in this field.
