Rohde & Schwarz SMBV100A Signal Generator Description

The Rohde & Schwarz SMBV100A offers excellent RF performance along with very high output level and short setting times. At the same time, the R&S SMBV100A can be equipped with an internal baseband generator to allow generation of a number of digital standards (e.g.LTE, LTE-Advanced, IEEE802.11ac, GNSS). The wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz covers all of the important bands for digital modulation.

Rohde & Schwarz SMBV100A Features

  • Frequency options from 9 kHz to 3.2 GHz/6 GHz
  • Optional baseband generator with realtime coder and arbitrary waveform generator for maximum flexibility
  • Optional ARB-only baseband generators as cost-saving alternatives
  • Support of 3GPP LTE FDD and TDD, 3GPP FDD/HSPA/HSPA+, GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, WiMAX and all other important digital standards
  • Fully fledged GNSS simulator with GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS/SBAS
  • Special package for cost efficient GNSS Production Tester
  • RF bandwidth of up to 160 MHz with internal baseband generator
  • I/Q modulator with 528 MHz RF bandwidth
  • Optimised for high production throughput
  • Prepared for aerospace and defence applications
  • Low cost of ownership due to simple service concept
