R&S SGT100A vector signal generator offers fast production test
June 8, 2014. The new R&S SGT100A vector signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz covers the frequency range from 80 MHz to 6 GHz. It is equipped with an integrated baseband generator that supports a maximum bandwidth of 160 MHz. Using the R&S WinIQSIM2 PC software, the generator can quickly and easily deliver test signals for all major digital standards such as LTE, 3GPP, and WLAN IEEE 802.11ac.
Frequency and level switchover times are typically 240 µs. Taking up just one height unit and one half of a 19″ rack width, the R&S SGT100A, offers a three-year recommended service interval. Feature upgrades can be performed directly at the customer's location.
The R&S SGT100A is suitable for use in production environments and in automated test systems. The instrument delivers the necessary test signals for dependably characterizing modules and RF components such as amplifiers or for testing femtocell base stations, for example.
The R&S SGT100A is complemented by the R&S FPS signal and spectrum analyzer. Together, the two instruments can be used as a mini system for testing high-frequency components at maximum speed.
