Brief Description

  • The R&S®SMJ100A meets all challenges that diverse applications place on modern vector signal generators. For example, it offers the signal quality and flexibility required in research and development – not to mention a convenient graphical user interface (GUI). And this is by no means all the R&S®SMJ100A has to offer – a fact that becomes evident in production, where it excels with its flexible baseband and low setting times. The baseband meets all requirements, from providing realtime signals to replaying precalculated waveforms.

    Equipped with 3 GHz or 6 GHz frequency options, the R&S®SMJ100A covers all important frequency bands essential in digital RF transmission. The internal baseband generator option handles a multitude of digital standards, e.g. GSM/EDGE, 3GPP FDD and CDMA2000 1). Its characteristics make the R&S®SMJ100A the ideal all-purpose vector signal generator, supporting a wide variety of applications.

    To handle future standards, the R&S®SMJ100A features a large bandwidth; thus, new standards such as WiMAX pose no problem. The internal arbitrary waveform generator is proof of its versatility. It offers sequences up to 128 Msamples in length and can be used with diverse signals from R&S®WinIQSIM or Matlab.
