The R&S SMW200A vector signal generator is the first to allow flat frequency response and 2-GHz modulating bandwidth above 44 GHz. In addition to all applications already supported up to 44 GHz, the 100 kHz to 56 GHz option covers all currently used 5G frequencies, as well as ground-satellite applications. The 100 kHz to 67 GHz option also supports planned higher frequency 5G bands, 60 GHz WiGig band and inter-satellite connections.

For the last decade, the ceiling for a stand-alone vector signal generator capable of creating a digital complex the high precision modulated signals are 44 GHz. Higher frequencies are only possible with additional external frequency converters or lower accuracy, both with limitations. Now, with new options for maximum frequencies of 56 GHz and 67 GHz, the R&S SMW200A from Rohde & Schwarz drastically raises the bar for generating high-frequency digitally modulated signals with high quality. A maximum modulation bandwidth of 2 GHz is maintained, meeting the requirements for even wider subcarrier distances specified for 5G FR2 Release 17 and broadband satellite transmissions. The established signal qualities of the R&S SMW200A, including excellent modulation, flat frequency response and four hardware-based phase noise performance levels, apply equally to the new frequency options.

Applications in the U and V bands currently supported include mobile radio, wireless LAN, and satellite communications. For mobile radio engineers developing radio frequency components and products to support the 5G mobile radio spectrum available in the 47 GHz band already allocated by the FCC to US network operators, the 56 GHz or 67 GHz R&S SMW200A is the ideal signal generator. 3GPP Edition 17, which specifies further enhancements to 5G, has reached a well-defined stage, so developers will be looking for a signal generator to cover the already extended FR2 frequency range from 52.6 GHz to 71 GHz. The only suitable signal generator currently available is the R&S SMW200A with a 67 GHz frequency option – it supports up to 72 GHz in overshoot mode.

The new frequency options are equally interesting for high-frequency WiFi and wireless LAN, including IEEE 802.11ad, which operates in the unlicensed 60 GHz band (57-71 GHz). For satellite communication applications, the rights and feedback operate between 37.5 GHz and 52.4 GHz; intersatellite connections use frequencies up to 66 GHz with a bandwidth of up to 2 GHz.

In addition, for demanding applications above 44 GHz in the aerospace and defense industry or for generating digitally modulated signals, including early research on 6G components and systems, the R&S SMW200A with 56 GHz or 67 GHz frequency options is the high-performance single signal source instrument. optionally.
