Key Facts

The R&S®SMP Microwave Signal Generator is a reliable, high-precision signal source featuring high output power, high spectral purity and excellent pulse modulation. It is able to supply different modulations for any measurement on radar and communication equipment. A wide range of options ensures universal use in R&D, production, EMC and environmental measurements as well as in material testing.

Features & Benefits

  • Instrument family with three models
    • R&S SMP02 (10 MHz to 20 GHz)
    • R&S SMP03 (10 MHz to 30 GHz)
    • R&S SMP04 (10 MHz to 40 GHz)
  • High output level
    • R&S SMP02 >+11.5 dBm
    • R&S SMP03 >+13 dBm
    • R&S SMP04 >+10 dBm
  • High spectral purity

    Spectral purity is one of the most important parameters for many applications. The R&S SMP family has an SSB phase noise of typical -109 dBc (1 Hz) at f = 10 GHz and 10 kHz offset.

  • Pulse modulation

    A classical field of application for microwave generators is the testing of radar receivers. Each R&S SMP has a precise pulse modulator built in by default. Optionally, leveled pulses down to a pulse width of 20 ns are possible.

  • FM/AM/SCAN, FSK, ASK and φM

    In addition to conventional CW capabilities, the R&S SMP family also supports classical analog modulation without any restrictions. The basic unit includes not only AM, FM and SCAN, but the digital modulation types ASK and FSK as well. The different modulations can also be combined to create more realistic signals.

  • Low cost of ownership with a three-year calibration cycle

    The three-year calibration interval reduces costs and increases availability.
