Signal Generator and Analyzer support WLAN IEEE 802.11ac.
March 5, 2013 -
Supporting bandwidth up to 160 MHz, R&S SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator enables developers to run receiver tests on individual chipsets, receivers, and terminals, while R&S FSV Signal and Spectrum Analyzer lets developers of components and modules for IEEE 802.11ac perform spectral measurements and modulation analyses. Both instruments cover not only WLAN but also all important standards such as GSM/EDGE, 3GPP WCDMA, HSPA, LTE, NFC, and Bluetooth®.

Rohde & Schwarz Offers Cost-efficient Generation and Analysis of WLAN IEEE 802.11ac Signals up to 160 MHz
Rohde & Schwarz has tailored its mid-range measuring instruments to handle WLAN signals in line with IEEE 802.11ac. Using the R&S SMBV100A and R&S FSV, manufacturers of WLAN chipsets, components and devices can now easily generate and analyze signals with 160 MHz bandwidth.
Munich, — New options extend the baseband of the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator to 160 MHz, making it the only signal generator to directly support high-speed modes for WLAN IEEE 802.11ac. An external PC is not needed. In the 5 GHz ISM band, the R&S SMBV100A offers exceptional signal performance (0.44 % EVM) for 160 MHz signals.
The latest generation of the field-tested R&S FSV signal and spectrum analyzer can also be equipped with a demodulation bandwidth of 160 MHz. Unmatched in the general-purpose instrument class, the analyzer can now be used to record and demodulate a WLAN IEEE 802.11ac signal in its full bandwidth of up to 160 MHz.
This provides cost-conscious R&D departments with an all-in-one solution consisting of these two easy-to-use measuring instruments. The R&S SMBV100A allows developers to run receiver tests on individual chipsets, receivers and terminals. Using the R&S FSV, developers of components and modules for IEEE 802.11ac can perform spectral measurements and modulation analyses. In addition, manufacturers of smartphone components benefit from the flexible Rohde & Schwarz solutions. Both the R&S SMBV100A and the R&S FSV cover not only WLAN but also all important standards such as GSM/EDGE, 3GPP WCDMA, HSPA, LTE, NFC and Bluetooth®.
The new options for the R&S SMBV100A and the R&S FSV for extending the baseband to 160 MHz as well as the R&S FSV-K91ac option for measurements in line with IEEE 802.11ac will be available soon from Rohde & Schwarz. Rohde & Schwarz will present the all-in-one solution at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (hall 6, booth E30).
