Demystifying 5G - Minimizing the impact of accessories when testing 5G RF components

Testing RF components, such as power amplifiers and filters, or prototype transceiver modules becomes much more complex with higher frequencies, particularly in the mmWave range used for 5G. Calibrating the test equipment to minimize their impact was extensive and time-consuming, and a change in power level or frequency range often required a recalibration. The R&S®SMW200A vector signal analyzer and R&S®FSW signal and spectrum analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz make the calibration of the signal path towards the device under test (DUT) simple and easy, as demonstrated in this video
