Radio Frequency Equipment

R&S® SMW200A Vector Signal Generator

This equipment, suitable for payload and link analysis can be used to generate and measure complex wideband waveforms up to 500MHz bandwidth at centre frequencies up to 40GHz.

R&S® FSW50 Signal Analyser

With a measurement bandwidth of 512MHz and upper operating frequency of 50GHz, the FSW50 signal analyser incorporates options to support state-of-the-art developments in the satellite industry.

The multichannel CW option (K17) allows (in conjunction with the associated option in our vector
signal generator) the group delay of a satellite link to be measured.

Power envelope and tracking measurements of high power amplifiers is possible using the K18 and K18D (digital pre-distortion) options.

R&S® ZNB40 Vector Network Analyser

The 4-port Vector Network Analyser allows highly accurate characterisation of active and passive RF components in the frequency range 10 MHz to 40 GHz.

Designed to meet the highest standards, our ZNB40 VNA offers a wide dynamic range of up to 140 dB, short sweep times (e.g. 4 ms for 401 points), high temperature stability (typ. 0.01 dB/οC) and simple manual or automatic calibration.

Keysight FieldFox Handheld Microwave Test System

The Keysight FieldFox N9950A is a highly integrated handheld microwave analyser that brings lab precision to the field by providing measurement capabilities (up to 32 GHz) on a field deployed terminal (supporting Ka-band uplinks).

Its capabilities include frequency response, time domain, and channel power measurements using the built-in VNA, CAT and spectrum analyser functions.

Keysight Technologies PROPSIM Channel Emulator F8B4CH-C80

The Keysight Propsim Channel Emulator is the industry standard for mobile and aerospace channel emulation. It covers the frequency range 220-4000MHz with 80MHz of bandwidth and has 4 channels. With up/down converters, operation from 100MHz to 100GHz can be achieved. Models can be created in STK, Matlab, Excel, Python and uploaded to the Propsim.
