Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) has launched new mid-range signal and spectrum analyser families, the R&S FSV3000 and R&S FSVA3000, with different frequency models covering up to 44 GHz. The R&S FSV3000 is designed to help users set up complex measurements in the simplest and fastest way possible. With its easy usability and high measurement speed, it is the right instrument for labs and production lines. It provides up to 200 MHz analysis bandwidth – enough to capture and analyse, for example, two 5G New Radio (NR) carriers at once.

The R&S FSVA3000, with up to 400 MHz analysis bandwidth, a high dynamic range and an outstanding phase noise of –120 dBc per Hz, delivers a performance that was, until recently, reserved for high-end instruments. It enables users to perform highly demanding measurement applications such as linearising power amplifiers, capturing short events and characterising frequency agile signals.

Both the R&S FSV3000 and the R&S FSVA3000 can measure EVM values better than 1 per cent for a 100 MHz signal at 28 GHz. Together with coverage of 5G NR frequency bands up to 44 GHz, this makes the analysers ideal for analysing 5G NR signals.

The R&S FSV3000 and the R&S FSVA3000 spectrum analysers simplify troubleshooting rare events and setting up complex measurements. With the event-based action GUI, whenever a predetermined event occurs, the corresponding action, such as saving a screenshot or I/Q data, is performed.

The R&S FSV3000 and the R&S FSVA3000 are designed for high speed performance in automated test systems. Both interact perfectly with cloud-based processing. The optional 10 Gbps LAN interface enables I/Q data transfer towards the network end even at high sample rates, which is required for wideband signal analysis such as for 5G.
