Key Facts

  • Two TRX channels with two independent signal
    generators and analyzers
  • 400 MHz to 8 GHz frequency range covering all
    FR1 frequency bands
  • Up to 500 MHz bandwidth
  • Hardware-accelerated test sequencing
  • Extensive signal generation and analysis software

Optimized for FR1 base station, small cell and RF
component testing

The R&S®PVT360A is a VSG/VSA single-box vector tester optimized for FR1 base station, small cell and RF
component testing in production and characterization environments. Two independent signal generators
and analyzers enable fast parallel measurements. A frequency range of up to 8 GHz, flexible bandwidth configuration and an optional second TRX channel provide the necessary performance and enable flexible adaptation in a small form factor.

Features & benefits

Keycode options for hardware extensions

The basic R&S®PVT360A configuration with the R&S®PVT-B106H option supports a frequency range of 400 MHz to 6 GHz and a bandwidth of 250 MHz on the first TRX. The instrument also comes fully equipped and calibrated for its maximum configuration. It has everything you need to activate a frequency range up to 8 GHz, a bandwidth extension of 500 MHz and the second TRX. The instrument can be adapted to your needs at any time.

Hardware-accelerated test sequencing

Speed is essential when performing multiple tests. The R&S®PVT360A automates testing and accelerates hardware test sequencing for extremely fast measurements. Using the ARB sequencer, waveforms can directly be queried from the RAM. The integrated signal generator and analyzer enable seamless interaction between the transmit and receive paths.

Internal switch matrix

The R&S®PVT360A switch matrix has outstanding flexibility and maximum resource utilization. When testing multiple DUTs or multiport devices, connectivity to the R&S®PVT360A via the various RF ports eliminates the need for an external switch matrix.
Each of the two optional generators can broadcast signals on up to 8 RF output ports. The signal analysis path can be assigned to one of eight RF input ports. The low switching time enables fast sequential measurements.

Smart channel

The R&S®PVT-K108 smart channel option virtually divides the R&S®PVT360A into as many as eight subinstruments. Virtual pairs of signal generators and analyzers can be controlled independently of one another. While generator and analyzer hardware is shared across the virtual instruments, processing and calculation is parallelized for maximum utilization and speed.

Manual and automated operation

The R&S®PVT360A GUI is accessible via a web interface or a connected monitor and provides a structured overview of signal generation and analysis settings.
The R&S®PVT360A also comes with SCPI support for automation and python libraries for easy automated testing. ARB sequencing allows ARB files to be accessed directly from the RAM, eliminating file loading times. Hardware based test sequencing further increases test speeds for excellent measurement throughput.

The web GUI has a structured view of the general purpose RF (GPRF) signal generation and analysis settings

Comprehensive signal generation and analysis

R&S®WinIQSIM2 external PC software supports the configuration and generation of ARB signals for multiple cellular and wireless connectivity standards.
A variety of measurement features for general purpose, cellular and wireless standards are available for signal analysis. The signal analysis applications provide insight into the physical layer and RF performance of the analyzed signal. The internal GUI or the R&S®VSE software provide a graphical representation of results.

Base station and small cell testing

The R&S®PVT360A provides measurement capabilities to test the physical layer of base stations and small cells. With frequencies up to 8 GHz and a bandwidth of  500 MHz, all FR1 frequency bands are covered. Standard-compliant signal generation and analysis for LTE and 5G NR up to release 17 for comprehensive, typical base station transmitter and receiver testing.

Component test and detailed characterization

The signal generation and analysis applications enable comprehensive component testing with modulated signals. A broad range of test applications for component testing is available with R&S®WinIQSIM2 and R&S®VSE software.
From amplifier characterization to signal analysis based on wireless standards, a wide range of tests can be carried out. High RF performance suitable for demanding measurements enables in-depth DUT testing for various signal parameters, while providing performance insight.

Enhanced testing in production environments

The R&S®PVT360A has different methods for parallelized tests and optimal resource utilization. The smart channel feature and a 2 × eight-port switch matrix virtually divides the R&S®PVT360A into subinstruments with shared signal generation hardware resources. Measurements can be performed in parallel for up to two TRX tests and when more DUTs or ports are connected, the tests can be run in parallel with automated resource scheduling.
