Key facts

  • Two TRX channels with two independent signal
    generators and analyzers
  • 400 MHz to 8 GHz frequency range covering all
    FR1 frequency bands
  • Up to 500 MHz bandwidth
  • Hardware-accelerated test sequencing
  • Extensive signal generation and analysis software

Optimized for FR1 base station, small cell and RF
component testing

The R&S®PVT360A is a VSG/VSA single-box performance vector tester optimized for FR1 base station, small cell and RF
component testing in production and characterization environments. Two independent signal generators
and analyzers enable fast parallelized measurements. A frequency range of up to 8 GHz, flexible bandwidth configuration and an optional second TRX channel provide the required performance and enable flexible adaptation in a small form factor.

Features & benefits

Keycode options for hardware extensions

The basic R&S®PVT360A configuration with the R&S®PVT-B106B option supports a frequency range of 400 MHz to 6 GHz and a bandwidth of 250 MHz on the first TRX. But the instrument comes fully equipped and calibrated for its maximum configuration. It includes all that is needed to activate a frequency range up to 8 GHz, a bandwidth extension of 500 MHz and the second TRX. The instrument can be adapted to your needs at any time.

Hardware-accelerated test sequencing

Speed is essential when performing multiple tests. The R&S®PVT360A provides test automation and hardware-accelerated test sequencing for extremely fast measurements. Using the ARB sequencer, waveforms can directly be queried from the RAM. The integrated signal generator and analyzer enable seamless interaction between the transmit and receive paths.

Internal switch matrix

The switch matrix of the R&S®PVT360A offers outstanding flexibility and maximum resource utilization. When testing multiple DUTs or multiport devices, connectivity to the R&S®PVT360A via the various RF ports eliminates the need for an external switch matrix.
Each of the optionally two generators can broadcast signals on up to 8 RF output ports. The signal analysis path can be assigned to one of 8 RF input ports. The low switching time enables fast sequential measurements.

Smart channel

The R&S®PVT-K108 smart channel option virtually divides the R&S®PVT360A into as many as eight subinstruments. Virtual pairs of signal generators and analyzers can be controlled independently of one another. While the generator and analyzer hardware are shared across the virtual instruments, processing and calculation is parallelized for maximum utilization and speed.

Manual and automated operation

The GUI of the R&S®PVT360A, accessible via a web interface or with a connected monitor, provides a structured overview of signal generation and analysis settings.
For automation the R&S®PVT360A comes with SCPI support and Python libraries for easy automated testing. ARB sequencing allows ARB files to be accessed directly from the RAM, eliminating file loading times. Hardware based test sequencing further increases test speeds for excellent measurement throughput.

Comprehensive signal gerneration and analysis

The R&S®WinIQSIM2 external PC software supports configuring and generating ARB signals for multiple cellular and wireless connectivity standards.
For signal analysis a variety of measurement features for general purpose, cellular and wireless standards are available. The signal analysis applications provide in-depth insights into the physical layer and RF performance of the analyzed signal. The internal GUI or the R&S®VSE software provide a graphical representation of results.

Base station and small cell testing

The R&S®PVT360A provides measurement capabilities to test the physical layer of base stations and small cells. With frequencies up to 8 GHz and a bandwidth of 500 MHz, all FR1 frequency bands are covered. Standard-compliant signal generation and analysis for 5G NR release 15 and 16 provide comprehensive test capabilities for typical base station transmitter and receiver tests.

Componet test and in-depth characterization

The signal generation and analysis applications enable comprehensive component testing with modulated signals. A broad range of test applications for component testing is available with R&S®WinIQSIM2 and R&S®VSE software.
From amplifier characterization to signal analysis based on wireless standards, a wide range of tests can be carried out. High RF performance suitable for demanding measurements enables in-depth DUT testing to get various signal parameters and gain insights of the performance.

Enhanced testing in production environments

For optimal resource utilization, the R&S®PVT360A provides different methods for parallelized tests. The smart channel feature in combination with a 2 × eight-port switch matrix virtually divides the R&S®PVT360A into subinstruments with shared signal generation hardware resources. The measurements can be operated fully in parallel for up to two TRX tests and, if a higher number of DUTs or ports are connected, the tests run quasi-parallel with automated scheduling of resources.
