Rohde & Schwarz presents wide variety of T&M solutions at first EuMCE event in Prague

Rohde & Schwarz will take part in the newly created European Microwave Conference in Central Europe (EuMCE) in Prague. The T&M specialist will present products and solutions for applications ranging from wideband radar, shielded mmWave device testing and multiport device testing to thermal effects diagnostics.

Rohde & Schwarz exhibits among others the new R&S ZNA at EuMCE in Prague.

The EuMCE event is organized by the European Microwave Association. It is modeled after European Microwave Week (EuMW) and will serve the microwave community in Central Europe. Rohde & Schwarz will bring a selection of solutions from its mmWave portfolio to the Czech capital on May 13 to 15, 2019.

Wideband radar testing

As radar and electronic warfare technologies advance and become increasingly complex, test and measurement systems must keep pace. At EuMCE, Rohde & Schwarz will present the R&S Pulse Sequencer software, used in combination with the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator to deliver wideband radar signals like pulses and chirps for generating test scenarios. Featuring ultra-long playtime through powerful real-time sequencing and support of direction finding scenarios consisting of moving emitters and a receiver, the solution follows the general trend of implementing more test sessions in the lab than in expensive field tests.

Also on display will be the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer. Featuring a wide range of measurement applications and an internal analysis bandwidth of up to 2 GHz, it can analyze wideband signals from radar systems and jammers without an external digitizer. The R&S FSW analysis bandwidth can be extended up to 5 GHz using an R&S RTO oscilloscope as an external digitizer to analyze ultra-wide signals like those used by automotive radars. The R&S FSW real-time capabilities allow users to reliably detect extremely short sporadic interference in the nanosecond range even in close proximity to powerful carriers – in a bandwidth up to 800 MHz.

Compact solution for shielded mmWave device testing

With the age of 5G technology approaching, production and conformance testing has to tackle new technical challenges, such as measuring new frequencies in the mmWave band. To meet these requirements, Rohde & Schwarz has developed several class-leading solutions. Among them is the new R&S CMQ200, a 19" shielding chamber. In combination with the R&S ZNA43 vector network analyzer, the R&S CMQ200 allows compact mmWave device testing in a shielded environment. The test solution will be demonstrated in Prague.

The R&S ZNA family represents the new high-end series of the Rohde & Schwarz vector network analyzer portfolio. Excellent RF performance is combined with a wide range of software features and a unique hardware architecture with four independent sources and two local oscillators (LO). The new R&S ZNA features an innovative, DUT-centric operating concept and comes with two independent touchscreens, making it the world's first purely touch-operated vector network analyzer. It is a powerful, easy-to-operate test platform for characterizing active and passive devices.

Multiport VNA with high measurement speed

The testing of multiport devices often requires high measurement speed and high dynamic range. The true multiport architecture of the R&S ZNBT vector network analyzer with two independent receivers per test port is the basis for fast and accurate measurement results. The R&S ZNBT is the first multiport vector network analyzer that offers up to 24 integrated test ports and supports measurements up to 40 GHz.

Thermal effects diagnostics on 5G devices

Thermal effects diagnostics on DUTs is crucial when analyzing chipset and user equipment performance since device heating or cooling can affect the RF components and consequently the radiation pattern of the antennas. Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate a setup for extreme temperature tests. The R&S ATS-TEMP climate option can be integrated into the R&S ATS1000 antenna test system and allows testing in a temperature range from –40 °C to +85 °C, making it possible for the first time to perform combined RF OTA and climatic testing in a single chamber.

Rohde & Schwarz will exhibit its T&M solutions at EuMCE at booths A17/18/19/20. For more information, visit:
