Rohde & Schwarz Debuts Their Smallest Microwave Vector Signal Generator

[SatNews] Rohde & Schwarz has released a 40 GHz version of the R&S SGU100A RF upconverter.

The Rohde & Schwarz SGU100A RF upconverter.

This version expands the frequency range of the R&S SGS100A vector signal generator from 12.75 GHz to 40 GHz, making it the smallest microwave device of its kind on the market for continuous signals between 80 MHz and 40 GHz. Though compact (two height units and ½ 19" rack width or one height unit and full 19" rack width ), the combination of the R&S SGS100A and the R&S SGU100A offers outstanding performance.

The setup is perfectly suited for ultrawideband aerospace and defense applications, as starting from 12 GHz the R&S SGU100A can be used with a 2 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth. Together with the R&S SMW200A high end vector signal generator with a frequency range up to 40 GHz, a compact system with a maximum of three phase coherent outputs up to 40 GHz can be set up ? ideal for testing phased array antenna systems.

The R&S SGU100A is now available from Rohde & Schwarz as a pure CW upconverter and as a version for I/Q-modulated signals.
