R&S®SMW200A Vector Signal Generator

The fine art of signal generation

For all your needs
  • Frequency range from 100 kHz to 3 GHz, 6 GHz, 7.5 GHz, 12.75 GHz, 20 GHz, 31.8 GHz, 40 GHz or 44 GHz
  • Optional second RF path with 100 kHz up to 3 GHz, 6 GHz, 7.5 GHz or 20 GHz
  • Versatile configuration: from single-path vector signal generator to multichannel MIMO receiver tester
  • Ideal for MIMO, MSR or LTE-Advanced applications thanks to up to eight signal sources and up to 32 fading channels
  • Modular architecture for optimal adaptation to the application at hand
Configuration example 1: A single-path R&S®SMW200A with internal baseband can be used for measurements on components or for fundamental receiver testing
Configuration example 2: A two-path R&S®SMW200A is ideal for receiver and performancetests on base stations. One generator can generate wanted signal plus interferer (in this example, a wanted LTE signal and a 3GPP FDD interferer).
Configuration example 3: A fully equipped R&S®SMW200A with MIMO option covers all key MIMO scenarios, such as 8x2 shown in the screenshot. In this case, the baseband section provides eight signal sources and 16 “logical” faders, i.e. MIMO channels.
Simplify your setup
  • Easy generation of complex signals
  • Max. eight baseband generators on two internal baseband modules with realtime coder and ARB
  • Internal digital adding of baseband signals, even with frequency and level offset
  • Wideband baseband and vector signal generator in one box
  • Support of all important digital standards such as 5G New Radio, LTE (up to Release 15), Cellular IoT, 3GPP FDD/HSPA/HSPA+, WLAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/j/p/ac/ad/ax, OneWeb, DVB-S2/DVB-S2X, OFDM signal generation
  • No separate PC software required for digital standards
  • Generation of radar signal scenarios for module, receiver and DFS tests
  • 5G NR, LTE and 3GPP test case wizards for easy base station conformance testing in line with 3GPP TS 38.141 , 3GPP TS 36.141 or 3GPP TS 25.141
  • Envelope tracking and AM/AM, AM/φM predistortion options for full testing and verification of ET modulator chipsets
Bring reality to your lab
  • Optional integrated fading section for channel emulation with up to 200 MHz bandwidth
  • All important fading scenarios available as presets
  • Installation of up to four fading modules, providing as many as 32 ”logical“ faders
  • Implementation of all key MIMO fading scenarios such as 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 8x4, 4x8 and 2x4x4 using a single instrument

  • Support of complex applications such as dual-carrier HSPA, LTE carrier aggregation with MIMO and multi-user LTE
4x8 MIMO setup, consisting of a two-path R&S®SMW200A and six R&S®SGS100A signal generator modules operated from the R&S®SMW200A. The modules provide RF paths 3 to 8. The R&S®SMW200A fully performs baseband signal generation and fading.
  • Connection of R&S®SGT100A signal generator modules to provide up to eight RF paths
Make your device even better
  • Excellent signal quality for high accuracy in spectral and modulation measurements
  • Up to 2 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth (in RF) with internal baseband
  • Exceptional modulation frequency response of < 0.4 dB (meas.) over 2 GHz bandwidth
  • High-end pulse modulation with on/off ratio > 80 dB and rise/fall time
  • Excellent spectral purity (SSB phase noise –150 dBc (typ.) at 1 GHz, 10 kHz offset)
  • Phase coherence option, e.g. for beamforming applications
  • 3 GHz, 6 GHz, 7.5 GHz and 12.75 GHz RF paths with electronic attenuator
Measured SSB phase noise performance, with R&S®SMW-B711/-B721 options
Measured SSB phase noise performance, standard instrument
Speed up your development
  • Intuitive operating concept and clever help functions for quick success
  • Block diagram as key operating element to visualize signal flow
  • Adaptive GUI for overview of both simple and complex scenarios
  • Graphical signal monitoring at practically every point in the signal flow
  • Context-sensitive online help system with complete user documentation
  • SCPI macro recorder and code generator for generating executable remote control code from manual operating steps (for MATLAB®, CVI, etc.)
The built-in SCPI macro recorder and code generator supports fast, convenient generation of SCPI program sequences.
Grows with your needs
  • Customizing of instrument to accommodate virtually every application
  • Advanced plug-in system for retrofitting baseband modules without instrument recalibration
  • Software upgrades possible at any time, simple and quick activation via key codes
