R&S®SMV03 Vector Signal Generator

Vector modulation in the analog class

This is a discontinued product
Please note the following successor product(s):

Broadband I/Q modulator

Frequency response of I/Q modulator (carrier frequency 1 GHz)

Thanks to its wide RF bandwidth of 100 MHz, the R&S® SMV03 is optimally suited for future systems which require higher bandwidth tests, eg.W-LAN.

Wide output frequency range from 9 kHz to 3.3 GHz with 0.1 Hz resolution

With the wide frequency range many applications are covered and one instrument can be used in many different tasks.

High (+13 dBm) and precise output level (<0.5 dB)

R&S® SMV03 has plenty of power in reserve so level loss produced by the test setup can be easily compensated. Also its high level accuracy makes it ideal for use in larger test setups: Measurement uncertainty can be split into the contribution from the instrument and that introduced from the test setup. With a smaller uncertainty of the generator, greater tolerances can be allowed for the test setup. If the small level deviation of the analyzer is used to allow for higher DUT tolerances, the result will be a marked reduction in manufacturing rejects - an advantage that pays off immediately.

Interruption-free level setting by electronic attenuator

Many highly sophisticated electronic devices are very sensitive for overshoots which are coming up from interrupts in level variations. With the interruption-free level setting of the R&S® SMV03 by its electronic attenuator the device under test is save from such overshoots.

SSB phase noise typ. -128 dBc (f=1 GHz, 20 kHz carrier offset, 1 Hz measurement bandwidth)

Typical SSB phase noise at 1 GHz (with OXCO option R&S® SML-B1)

Low-noise frequency synthesis ensures modulation of highest quality for reliable test signals.

Fast setting time for frequency and level

Due to the synthesizer concept the setting times are very low. This is an important feature which makes it ideal for the use in production where speed is of prime importance. And this is exactly one of the strong points of the R&S® SMV03, with a setting time lower than 12 ms when IQ modulation is switched on. Without IQ modulation the value is with 10 ms even lower.

Low cost of ownership with a 3-year calibration cycle

The three-year calibration intervals cuts costs and increase availability.

Compact size (only 2 HU)

Space is often at a premium in production. The compact size of the R&S SMV03 makes it ideal for use in such environments.

AM/FM/φM and optional Pulse modulation

Besides the vector modulation capabilities the R&S® SMV03 also covers the classic analog modulation without any restrictions. So for example with the DC-coupled FM the R&S® SMV03 allows to be used as an accurate VCO. Simultaneously, AM, FM/φM and pulse modulation or vector modulation can be used.
