video description Level-controlled passive intermodulation (PIM) measurements presented at EuMW 2013

Rohde & Schwarz demonstrated fast and accurate passive intermodulation (PIM) testing of duplex filters at the European Microwave Week 2013 in Nuremberg. The four-port R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer with its two internal sources and automatic level control (ALC), together with the R&S®BBA150 broadband amplifiers, provides a unique solution for extremely fast PIM measurements. ALC makes it possible to overcome the issues of thermal and power settling times as well as amplifier output power variation reducing test time from minutes to typically less than a second per sweep.

Satellite measurements without LO access presented at EuMW 2013

Rohde & Schwarz presented group delay measurements on converters without LO access at the European Microwave Week 2013 in Nuremberg. Based on a novel two-tone technique, the R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer with the R&S®ZVA-K9 embedded LO mixer delay measurements option enables absolute group delay measurements on mixers and frequency converters without the need for a calibration mixer. In addition, the much easier calibration requiring only a through connection significantly simplifies the setup for this measurement.

Single connection active device characterization (SCDC) with R&S®ZVA presented at EuMW 2012

Rohde & Schwarz demonstrated the characterization of active devices with a single connection at the European Microwave Week 2012 in Amsterdam. The R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer enables simultaneous measurements on active devices such as amplifiers, converters or TR modules without the need to reconnect the test device. A unique method for noise figure measurements on frequency converting devices is available with the R&S®ZVA-K31 noise figure measurement option.

Group delay measurement on devices with embedded LO using option R&S ZVA-K9

This video demonstrates group delay and relative phase measurements on frequency converting devices where access to the LO is limited. The measurements are made using the R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer equipped with the R&S®ZVA-K9 embedded LO mixer delay measurements option from Rohde & Schwarz. Based on a unique and novel two-tone method, mixers and frequency converters can be characterized in a very simple and convenient way.

Simplified test setup using R&S®ZVAB-K30 noise figure measurement option

The R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer in combination with the R&S®ZVAB-K30 noise figure measurement option simplifies noise figure measurement, a key parameter for receiver performance evaluation. This video demonstrates the simple and straight-forward calibration steps including power calibration of source and receivers, noise figure calibration and system error correction, and the noise figure measurement. Using the R&S®ZVA eliminates the need for a calibrated noise source and impedance tuners.
