05/29/2020 | 36Rohde & Schwarz is continuously extending its portfolio of test solutions for 5G base stations and the associated massive MIMO antenna arrays and amplifiers. Highlights include an OTA test solution with frontend modules specifically for the 5G FR2 range and a solution for speed-optimized tests of 5G base stations. Both are ideal for use in production. There is also a new, innovative test solution that allows developers to perform cross-channel measurements with up to 4x4 MIMO in the FR1 range.
05/19/2020 | 585G NR necessitates new testing approaches. The introduction of the new, mmWave based FR2 frequency range for 5G and the increased use of active antennas without physical connectors requires testing to be performed over the air (OTA). Rohde & Schwarz has developed a test solution able to perform the first tests for RF conformance in 3GPP FR2.
05/08/2020 | 87Developments in mobile technology are moving constantly towards increasing bandwidths, enabling increasingly high data throughput. The Rohde & Schwarz setup represents some of the first research exploring data transmission at sub-THz frequencies featuring ultra-wide bandwidths.
04/24/2020 | 96Testing 5G NR products requires new T&M approaches, as devices will use a much higher bandwidth, and active antennas make over-the-air (OTA) measurements compulsory. To successfully fulfil and surpass these complex requirements, Rohde & Schwarz has created an innovative portfolio for 5G NR device test solutions. For developers of 5G devices, Rohde & Schwarz features the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester enabling non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) signaling tests now in both FR1 and FR2 frequency ranges.
04/10/2020 | 113The R&S CMW platform of Bluetooth® testers already support the new Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) version 5.2 power control test routines. These are the only T&M instruments that measure all specified RF tests up to Bluetooth LE 5.0 via the air interface. This unique solution has already been submitted to the Bluetooth® SIG for the specification of a new Bluetooth LE test mode.
New R&S NGP800 power supplies boost efficiency with up to four independent channels in a single compact instrument
03/31/2020 | 116For any test and measurement application requiring up to four independent DC power supplies with full flexibility, full functionality, full safety and full connectivity, the R&S NGP800 power supply series will boost the efficiency in any lab or production line. Users benefit from the large 5” high resolution touch screen, which also displays detailed statistics.
03/17/2020 | 124Rohde & Schwarz and Gemalto, a Thales company, are working on significantly reducing expensive and time-consuming drive tests. IoT protocol stack features have been specified by 3GPP, but IoT devices have to interact with different network configurations worldwide. This makes it important to ensure that these features are working well in all sorts of configurations, configured by different network operators.
5G Site Testing Solution from Rohde & Schwarz bundles test tools for gNodeB site acceptance and troubleshooting
03/06/2020 | 113Site acceptance and troubleshooting of each new cell site must test new capabilities, such as beamforming and 5G/LTE dual connectivity, to verify the correct installation and performance and to ensure that the required quality of service (QoS) is delivered to end users.
Rohde & Schwarz introduced R&S Cloud4Testing, the first SaaS platform for RF testing software applications
02/21/2020 | 133R&S Cloud4Testing is an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering from Rohde & Schwarz. The platform is accessible with a browser without having to install any additional software or plugins.
Rohde & Schwarz improves signal integrity debugging with innovative jitter decomposition approach for its oscilloscopes
02/11/2020 | 144A new option for the R&S RTO and R&S RTP oscilloscopes helps development engineers gain more insight into the individual jitter components of their transmission interface. Now they can separate jitter into its random and deterministic components and view results flexibly for effective debugging. The Rohde & Schwarz decomposition algorithm uses a parametric signal model for accurate measurements and additional result representations.
