Very high output power without compromise

Large dynamic range, excellent level accuracy and level repeatability 

Very high output power is often required in the microwave frequency range because the higher the frequency, the more attenuation. The R&S®SMA100B offers different output power stages to compensate for such losses. As a result, no downstream external amplifier is required.

  • Over 30 dBm at 18 GHz and 28 dBm at 20 GHz with the 20 GHz instrument
  • Over 19 dBm between 40 GHz and 65 GHz with the 67 GHz instrument

User friendly in every detail

Easy integration into test systems and innovative operating features

  • Flexible 2 HU or 3 HU housing
  • 3 HU with large 7" display and multiple front panel connectors
  • Ergonomic GUI with touch display
  • Frequently used menu items can be added to the user menu for quick and direct access to all necessary settings in a single menu
  • The R&S®SMA100B also has a SCPI macro recorder with a code generator to automatically record manual settings and create an executable MATLAB® script

High-end ADC and DAC component tests

Measure the true performance of your device 

Analog input bandwidth and required clock frequency increase with each new ADC generation. The increase in the effective number of bits also results in a larger signal-to-noise ratio. This means that extremely clean, high-frequency signals that exceed the DUT performance are required to test ADCs and DACs. The outstanding R&S®SMA100B performance is perfect not only for optimizing DUTs, it can even make improvements technically feasible in the first place.

 R&S®NRP power sensor connectivity

An R&S®NRP power sensor  can be connected to the R&S®SMA100B

A DUT is rarely connected directly to the generator. Cables and other components are often between the generator and the DUT. This shifts the reference plane from the generator's RF output to the DUT. An R&S®NRP power sensor can be connected to the R&S®SMB100B to allow extremely precise calibration (tenth of a dB) on this new reference plane.

UCOR (user corretion)

Compensation of an external frequency response

DUTs are often connected to the signal generator via long cables or other frequency dependent components, making it very important to compensate for the frequency response. The R&S®SMA100B provides a user correction (UCOR) function for this purpose. Together with an R&S®NRP power sensor, the UCOR values are automatically determined by the push of a button. With UCOR, a frequency response compensated RF signal is available at the new reference plane.

Variable reference frequency inputs/outputs

The R&S®SMA100B provides various ways to output (or input) reference signals. The 1 MHz to 100 MHz variable external reference frequency input (R&S®SMAB-K704 option) allows the R&S®SMA100B to be easily integrated into existing test environments. The received reference frequency can also be assigned to a completely different reference output.

Uninterrupted level sweep with high dynamic range

When measuring the gain transfer function or the output saturation point of an amplifier with integrated automatic level control (ALC), the signal generator must provide a wide uninterrupted level sweep range. The R&S®SMA100B equipped with the R&S®SMAB-K724  option essentially provides the following:

  • Blank-free (uninterrupted) level sweep with exceptionally high dynamic range
  • High level linearity across the entire level sweep range
