  • 3 year warranty extension

High-performance baseband signals

The R&S®AFQ100B signal and I/Q modulation baseband generator with a bandwidth of 528 MHz (RF) is a good choice for applications that require high bandwidth. Applications include support of broadband digital communications systems such as UWB (ultra-wideband signals) or aerospace & defence (A&D) radar applications where signals can have extremely short pulses and short rise and fall times might be needed.

Features & benefits

Outstanding signal quality

  • Excellent spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of typ. 78 dBc
  • Frequency response of typ. ± 0.5 dB across 100 MHz I/Q bandwidth
  • Very pure sine-wave source
  • Frequency response compensation

Equalization in the AFQ100B
Open Lightbox

Equalization in the AFQ100B

Inverse filters compensate for the effects of cables and the DUT with equalization, achieving a very linear frequency response at the DUT output.

Broad scope of applications

  • Analog I/Q outputs (balanced and unbalanced) and optional digital outputs
  • Multisegment waveform to reduce switching time 
  • between different test signals and improve test throughput
  • Numerous trigger and marker capabilities, e.g. for synchronization with a DUT
  • Optional BER measurements for characterizing receiver

Balanced and unbalanced analog I/Q outputs

Balanced and unbalanced analog I/Q outputs

The AFQ100B comes standard with balanced output signals.

Easy operation

The R&S®AFQ100B is easy to operate and control. To access the modern graphical user interface (GUI), the instrument has a video output for an external display. To control the instruments, simply connect a USB keyboard and/or mouse. The instruments can be remote controlled via GPIB, USB and LAN. The generator comes with an internal 160 Gbyte hard disk.
