Rohde & Schwarz presents the ultrasensitive R&S FSWP phase noise analyzer and VCO tester

The new phase noise analyzer and VCO tester from Rohde & Schwarz enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements. The R&S FSWP also allows users to very easily measure pulsed sources and residual phase noise of RF components. Plus the instrument can be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer.

With the new R&S FSWP phase noise tester, users can measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) more quickly than with any other solution. The high-end instrument covers a frequency range up to 50 GHz and offers a top dynamic range. The extremely low phase noise of its local oscillator coupled with cross-correlation even makes it possible to easily measure signal sources that in the past required complex test setups.

Thanks to its fully digital signal processing, the R&S FSWP performs complex measurements at the push of a button and features intuitive touchscreen operation. It can quickly and easily measure the phase noise of pulsed sources as well as residual phase noise under pulsed conditions. The R&S FSWP is therefore ideal for both aerospace and defense and automotive applications, e.g. for manufacturers of radar components and synthesizers. Thanks to its additional voltage sources, the R&S FSWP is also ideal for measuring VCOs ‒ in research and development and, thanks to its high measurement speed, also in production.

The R&S FSWP can be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer. Rohde & Schwarz is still the only manufacturer to offer the combination of both measurement solutions in a single device, like its predecessor model, the R&S FSUP.

The R&S FSWP8 and R&S FSWP26 models for the 8 and 26 GHz frequency ranges will be available from Rohde & Schwarz in September 2015; the R&S FSWP50 model for up to 50 GHz at the end of 2015.
