Munich-based Rohde & Schwarz will be welcoming visitors to its home turf at productronica 2019, one of the leading trade fair for electronics development and production. At booth 375 in hall A1 of Messe München, the company will display its solutions for Industry 4.0, test and measurement solutions for production and development, and automatic production test systems.
Among the solutions for availability and reliability of wireless systems are handheld spectrum analyzers such as the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH and the R&S MNT100 RF interference locator, which can detect radio interference that might cause output delays. To measure coverage and provide insight into the RF performance of the network, there are drive test and walk test scanners from the R&S TSMx family.
With the latest version of the R&S CMW100 radio communication tester, Rohde & Schwarz will also display its production tester for 5G FR1 devices, a flexible one-box solution with eight antenna ports that also covers 4G, 3G, WLAN and Bluetooth. For production tests of 5G FR2 devices, covering parametric testing in an over-the-air test setup, Rohde & Schwarz has developed the compact R&S CMPQ, a turnkey mmWave OTA test solution for FR2. This solution is based on a radio communication tester, a shielded cube and accessories.
For speed-optimized production testing of 4G and 5G base stations, Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate a scalable high-performance RF test solution with a setup based on cloud technology, comprising the R&S SMBV100B signal generator, the R&S FSVA3000 signal and spectrum analyzer and the R&S Quickstep sequencing software. The R&S ATS1500C automotive radar test chamber and the R&S AREG100A automotive radar echo generator form an indirect farfield chamber solution that ensures reliable and reproducible testing of radar sensors on a small footprint. The R&S ZNL and R&S ZNBT20 are two vector network analyzer solutions optimized for production applications. The R&S ZNBT20 with its true-multiport architecture features 24 ports up to 20 GHz.
