Rohde & Schwarz expands signal analyser for automotive R&D

Rohde & Schwarz FSW signal and spectrum analyser

Rohde & Schwarz is expanding the internal analysis bandwidth of its FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyser up to 2GHz by introducing the FSW-B2001 option. This lets R&D users investigate wideband signals in detail without the need for an external digitiser.

The option provides 14bit ADC resolution and wide dynamic range, characterised by the SFDR figures, for example -65dBc for 1200MHz bandwidth. This translates directly into signal analysis performance.
