Rohde & Schwarz: fully tuned for microwave and mm-wave testing at EuMW 2017

At European Microwave Week 2017, the Rohde & Schwarz portfolio can be experienced first hand. Themes are automotive radar test solutions, RF & microwave component testing, radar testing, 5G & wideband communication and satellite payload and link tests.

With Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), vehicles are increasingly being equipped with radar sensors that support drivers in critical situations. To meet the industry's testing needs, Rohde & Schwarz has developed a range of completely new radar test solutions, presented to the public at EuMW 2017 for the very first time. Users in R&D, validation and certification, as well as production can gain insight into solutions for radome measurements and echo generation. They will be able to learn how to measure and analyze radomes for automotive radars within seconds and how to minimize the influence of the radome on radar performance. Also, they will be able to learn, how automotive radar performs in real-world environments when subject to interference and how to reliably test radar sensors in production with an integrated end-of-line test solution.

At the main booth, Rohde & Schwarz has devoted an area to solutions for RF & microwave component testing. For characterizing components at maximum performance without compromise, one of the highlights is the new R&S SMA100B analog RF and microwave signal generator delivering signals with the lowest possible phase noise and the highest output power with extremely low harmonics. Other exhibits include the innovative multiport microwave component test solution based on the R&S ZNBT multiport vector network analyzer, now up to 24 ports, and with the new multiport calibration solution, which enables recalibration of the test setup without disconnecting the DUT from the test cables. In addition, on-wafer characterization in the millimeterwave range using MPI probers are shown, as well as the R&S BBA130 twin-band amplifier with its adjustable amplifier parameters for design and product validation tests.

Another area at the booth is dedicated to radar testing. As a test solution for generating and analyzing extremely wideband pulsed signals, Rohde & Schwarz is showcasing the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator with its internal and calibrated wideband baseband hardware up to 2 GHz. It will be showcased together with the R&S Pulse Sequencer software that makes it possible to configure realistic, complex, agile and wideband radar signals.

To support 5G and general wideband communication development, Rohde & Schwarz is presenting a test solution consisting of the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and R&S FSW43 signal and spectrum analyzer. The setup supports Verizon 5GTF signals and 5G candidate waveforms such as FBMC, UFMC, GFDM or f OFDM at frequencies up to 40 GHz and with 2 GHz internal analysis bandwidth. The R&S NRPM OTA power measurement solution is designed to calibrate the transmit output power and test the beamforming function of antennas and phased arrays in an over-the-air setup. These over-the-air verification tests cover a frequency range from 27.5 GHz to 75 GHz and are suitable for testing signals for 5G as well as the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11ay.

For users in the satellite communications sector, Rohde & Schwarz demonstrates its complete product portfolio for satellite payload, link and terminal testing. Rohde & Schwarz specialists will be sharing their expertise in a variety of technical workshops and basic seminars as part of the event program.
