Key facts

  • Continuous frequency range from 36 GHz to 56 GHz across the Q/V band
  • Instantaneous modulation bandwidth up to 2 GHz
  • High output power up to +16 dBm (specified)
  • Setup with 20 GHz R&S®SMW200A (modulated signal) and 20 GHz R&S®SMA100B (local oscillator)
  • Small form factor, low weight, mounting points for outdoor TVAC mounting closest to the DUT

Q/V Band component and satellite payload testing

Future satellite and mobile industry applications will also use frequencies in the Q/V band. With its instantaneous 2 GHz modulation bandwidth, the R&S®SZV100A covers the entire frequency range from 36 GHz to 56 GHz and enables testing far beyond the bandwidth limits of typical satellite and IMT/5G NR applications.

Features & benefits

Time and cost savings

With its modular approach, the R&S®SZV100A is perfect as an external RF upconverter to extend existing test systems and continue using an existing R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator with its outstanding features.

Large instantaneous modulation bandwidth

With its 2 GHz instantaneous modulation bandwidth, the R&S®SZV100A Q/V band RF upconverter is ideal for testing wideband transponders and very high throughput satellites (VHTS)

Excellent group delay and amplitude flatness

Very strict requirements and measurement tolerances apply when designing satellite payloads. The R&S®SZV100A Q/V band RF upconverter delivers top performance with a specified group delay flatness of ±1.5 ns and amplitude flatness of ±2.5 dB at a modulation bandwidth of 500 MHz.

Long-term RF power and frequency stability

Thanks to its internal calibration data and internal temperature sensors, the R&S®SZV100A Q/V band RF upconverter can maintain an output level of +16 dBm with minimal temperature drift and constant output frequency even during long-term measurements. This allows users to repeat measurements and compare measurement results.

Covers latest satellite bands

The R&S®SZV100A covers the latest frequency bands for satellite applications and 5G in the Q/V band while offering superior signal quality coupled with maximum output power for the calibrated wanted signal. The calibration data is stored in the R&S®SZV100A.

Designed for testing beyond the standard

The continuous frequency range from 36 GHz to 56 GHz allows the user to perform out-of-band measurements outside the typical band limits of the Q/V satellite bands.

Remote operation close to the DUT

Thanks to its compact housing design and flexible mounting options, the R&S®SZV100A is ideal for remote operation with a maximum distance of up to 10 m. The gain can be switched between low and high gain mode and the output signal can be attenuated by 10 dB.
