R&S SAM100

Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in microwave test & measurement systems, has announced the introduction of a new system amplifier. Designated R&S®SAM100, the microwave amplifier sets new standards in ease of operation, robust design and super-compact footprint within the 2 – 20 GHz range with up to 20W output power.

SAM100 targets manufacturers of passive and active microwave components and microwave devices for mobile radio (UMTS, LTE, 4G & 5 G), IoT (WLAN, Bluetooth), satellite and radar applications. Rohde & Schwarz has focused on the professional requirements of R&D engineers using system amplifiers for design validation testing (DVT), system integrators and test engineers using system amplifiers for setting up automatic test systems for product validation tests (PVT) as well as for production validation of RF products. Another target group is EMC test lab engineers with a need to test up to 18 GHz.

“SAM100 represents a new approach to the system amplifier challenge,“ said Wolfram Titze, Director of Product Management and Sales Support, Amplifier Systems at Rohde & Schwarz. “It offers a unique approach with its combination of output power, high bandwidth and low noise. Especially when used as compact desktop version with external power supply, SAM100 allows users to bring the RF-power where it is needed. “

The product of extensive research & development within Rohde & Schwarz, SAM100 represents an ultra-broadband amplifier for a variety of test setups and system configurations in the 2 – 20 GHz range. Featuring high gain with low noise at superior linearity makes the unit highly suited to AM, FM, PM, and OFDM applications.

“We have seeded beta test units with several of our key customers and the SAM100 is earning rave reviews – with increased demand for mobile radio and IoT devices, this new amplifier is proving to be a big asset in bringing new products to market faster,“ added Wolfram Titze.
