SHOW NEWS: Ultrasensitive phase noise analyzer and VCO tester


Rohde & Schwarz will introduce the new R&S FSWP phase noise analyzer and voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) tester, which enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements, at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2015.

The R&S FSWP can measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers and VCOs more quickly than any other solution. The instrument covers a frequency range up to 50GHz and the extremely low phase noise of its local oscillator coupled with cross-correlation enables the measurement of signal sources that in the past have required complex test setups or could not be measured at all.

Thanks to its fully digital signal processing, the R&S FSWP performs complex measurements at the push of a button and features intuitive touchscreen operation. It can quickly and easily measure the phase noise of pulsed sources as well as residual phase noise under pulsed conditions. Thanks to its additional voltage sources, the R&S FSWP is ideal for measuring VCOs in research and development and can also be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer.

Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2015 takes place at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, from June 16-18. Rohde & Schwarz are exhibiting at booth 1458.
