Key facts

  • Frequency range from 8 kHz to 3 GHz or 6 GHz
  • Ultra high output power up to +33 dBm
  • 1 GHz modulation bandwidth with perfect accuracy
  • Signal generation for all major digital communications standards incl. 5G NR, LTE and WLAN
  • GNSS simulator with GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS/SBAS
  • 3 year warranty extension

Perfect solution for mobile communications, GNSS and other applications

The state-of-the-art R&S®SMBV100B vector signal generator sets standards for its class. Ultra high output power, fully calibrated wideband signal generation and intuitive touchscreen operation make the R&S®SMBV100B ideal for all kinds of applications.

Always in line with the latest major digital communications standard specifications, such as 5G NR, LTE and WLAN, the SMBV100B is the preferred test solution for receiver and component characterization.

The R&S®SMBV100B can come with many GNSS options, transforming the instrument into a reliable, full-featured GNSS simulator. The advanced simulation capabilities enable realistic and complex yet repeatable GNSS scenarios to be run under controlled conditions.

Features & benefits

Perfect for signal quality

  • Excellent EVM performance of 0.2% for 20 MHz LTE signals  even at high output power levels.
  • Impressive ACPR values of < –72 dB ACPR (WCDMA test model 1, 64 DPCH, measured)
  • Very low SSB phase noise of < –134 dBc (measured) at 1 GHz and 20 kHz offset.
  • Real-time compensation for the effects of test fixtures.

Measured EVM performance vs. Level

Measured EVM performance vs. Level

Measured EVM performance vs. RMS level (R&S®SMBV100B equipped with R&S®SMBVB-K31 and R&S®SMBVB-B32 options).

Wide modulation bandwidth with perfect accuracy

To meet demand for higher modulation bandwidths, the R&S®SMBV100B comes equipped with a high performance baseband. The intelligent internal real-time frequency response correction in the generator enables an extremely high amplitude flatness of < 0.3 dB (measured) across the entire bandwidth of 1 GHz.

Measured frequency response

Measured frequency response

Measured frequency response across maximum RF modulation bandwidth of 500 MHz at different carrier frequencies

Perfect for power

Ultra high output power and excellent level accuracy

When equipped with the appropriate options, the R&S®SMBV100B can produce output power of up to +34 dBm (measured at 1 GHz) and the specified level increases to +25 dBm across almost the entire frequency range.
After calibration, it is critical that the generator set level values for each test sequence repeatably and with high precision. Here, the R&S®SMBV100B delivers top performance with a measured level repeatability of < 0.09 dB.

Maximum output power (measured)
Open Lightbox

Maximum output power (measured)

Measured output power for base unit, with high power option (R&S®SMBVB-K31) and additional ultra-high-power option (R&S®SMBVB-B32).

Perfect for GNSS simulation

The R&S®SMBV100B can come with many GNSS options transforming the instrument into a reliable, full-featured GNSS simulator. The advanced simulation capabilities enable realistic and complex yet repeatable GNSS scenarios to be run under controlled conditions. This includes realistic modeling of GNSS orbits, signal propagation  effects and system errors as well as realistic modeling of the user environment.
