Rohde & Schwarz will also demonstrate its portfolio for radiated spurious emissions measurements (RSE), which now covers the 5G FR1 frequency range. This includes the latest generation R&S OSP230 open switch and control platform, which has a new powerful and straightforward user interface. The R&S OSP options simplify RSE measurements on mobile communications components considerably, since test routines and filters are adapted to each other. The amplifiers and filters are now designed for frequencies up to 18 GHz and even up to 90 GHz for converters and multiplexers.
The R&S TS8997 test system tests instruments in line with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) certification guideline for radio equipment in Europe. The system also offers certification testing in line with ETSI EN 301 893 and EN 300 328 for wireless devices in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band as well as checks in line with FCC §15.247 and §15.407, including DFS tests. The R&S TS8997 tests DUTs with up to eight antennas automatically. It meets or even exceeds the demanding measurement requirements of these test standards.
In order to avoid unpleasant surprises during EMC acceptance, it makes sense to eliminate radio interference during the product development phase and adapt the design accordingly. As a genuine multipurpose instrument, the R&S FPC1000, with the high quality R&S HZ-17 near-field probe set and the R&S HM6050-2 impedance stabilization network, is for detecting radiated and conducted interference. The R&S FPC1000 with the ELEKTRA base module, LEMI-E, is perfect for repetitive measurement procedures and documentation of the results.
The R&S RTO and R&S RTE digital oscilloscope families are also valuable tools for analyzing EMC problems in electronics development. High input sensitivity, a wide dynamic range and powerful FFT implementation are key for recording and analyzing unwanted emissions.
All this is being shown at the EMV show in Stuttgart this week.
