Features & benefits

Perfect for signal quality

  • Excellent EVM performance of 0.2% for 20 MHz LTE signals  even at high output power levels.
  • Impressive ACPR values of < –72 dB ACPR (WCDMA test model 1, 64 DPCH, measured)
  • Very low SSB phase noise of < –134 dBc (measured) at 1 GHz and 20 kHz offset.
  • Realtime compensation for the effect of test fixtures.

Measured EVM performance vs. Level

Wide modulation bandwidth with perfect accuracy

To satisfy the need for higher modulation bandwidths, the R&S®SMBV100B is equipped with a high performance baseband. Thanks to the generator’s intelligent internal realtime frequency response correction, an extremely high amplitude flatness of < 0.3 dB (measured) is achieved across the entire bandwidth of 500 MHz.

Measured frequency response

Perfect for power

Ultra high output power and excellent level accuracy

When equipped with the appropriate options, the R&S®SMBV100B can produce output power of up to +34 dBm (measured at 1 GHz) and the specified level increases to +25 dBm across almost the entire frequency range.
After calibration, it is critical that the generator set the level values for each test sequence repeatably and with high precision. Here, the R&S®SMBV100B delivers top performance with a measured level repeatability of < 0.09 dB.
