The R&S®SMBV100A was developed to satisfy this objective and is setting new standards for this class of instrument. Key features Frequency range 9 kHz to 3.2 GHz or 6 GHz Level range typ. –120 dBm to +24 dBm Future-proof hardware concept The R&S®SMBV100A vector signal generator benefits from a carefully planned instrument concept. Depending on the configuration, the instrument can function as a pure I/Q upconverter, a cost-effective signal generator with integrated ARB or an advanced vector signal generator with internal signal generation and realtime capabilities. The instrument concept allows the signal generator to be adapted to the individual task at hand, thereby reducing the investment required. At the same time, the performance of the individual hardware components provides ample capacity for future applications as well. RF section with high output level up to 6 GHz The R&S®SMBV100A is available with options for a maximum frequency of 3.2 GHz or 6 GHz, covering all major frequency bands for wireless communications and other radio applications. Customized instrument configuration Internal signal generation for various standards (optional) Internal bandwidth up to 120 MHz in RF range External bandwidth >500 MHz in RF range – suitable for UWB The standard electronic attenuator with integrated overvoltage protection ensures dependable operation of the R&S®SMBV100A – even in challenging production environments. The maximum output level is typ. +24 dBm over the entire frequency range above 1 MHz. Instrument overview I/Q test vectors from e.g. ¸WinIQSIM2 TM or MATLAB ® External I/Q input for more than 500 MHz RF bandwidth ¸SMBV100A Baseband section Digital standards (optional) such as LTE WiMAX 3GPP 4 Baseband generator Signal calculation and realtime encoding (e.g. custom digital modulation) with ¸SMBV-B10 Arbitrary waveform generator (ARB) Waveform playback with ¸SMBV-B10/-B50/-B51 I/Q modulator Up to 120 MHz RF bandwidth RF section up to 6 GHz Wide RF signal bandwidth of up to 120 MHz with internal signal generation The wide R&S®SMBV100A RF bandwidth extending up to 120 MHz with internal signal generation is more than adequate for the latest broadband digital standards such as LTE and WiMAX. This bandwidth also offers ample capacity for future standards. Since it is easy to import test signals you create on your own, e.g. with MATLAB®, the R&S®SMBV100A is well prepared to generate the signals you will also need in the future. Frequency response of the I/Q modulator with bandwidth of over 500 MHz -40 -45 -50 -55 -60 -65 Maximum RF bandwidth of I/Q modulator exceeds 500 MHz The integrated I/Q modulator provides a maximum RF bandwidth of over 500 MHz for externally supplied I/Q signals. For example, this wide bandwidth allows upconversion of UWB signals, which can be generated as I/Q signals by the R&S®AFQ100B baseband signal generator. This wide bandwidth is also available for use with frequency agility or steep-edged pulse modulation with a flexible external I/Q source such as the R&S®AFQ100B. -70 -75 -80 -85 -90 Center 4.488 GHz 100 MHz/ Span 1 GHz Always up-to-date with software upgrades The powerful baseband generator is already prepared to handle future applications.

R&S®SMBV100A and R&S®AFQ100B Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator 5 ustomized internal C signal generation with optional baseband generator The one aspect that truly makes the R&S®SMBV100A stand out is its optional baseband generator, which is available in three different versions for different applications: Version Option Baseband generator RF bandwidth 1 R&S®SMBV-B10 Baseband coder with realtime capabilities and ARB (32 Msample or 256 Msample) 120 MHz 2 R&S®SMBV-B50 ARB only (32 Msample or 256 Msample) 120 MHz 3 R&S®SMBV-B51 ARB only (32 Msample or 256 Msample) 60 MHz Key features Internal signal generation (optional) Choice of three different baseband generators (internal signal generation with realtime capabilities or two ARB-only versions) ARB with 32 Msamples, extendable up to 256 Msamples ARB supported by R&S®WinIQSIM2™ Easy interaction with MATLAB® Optional 80 Gbyte mass memory for storage of signals Baseband coder with realtime capabilities for direct signal generation The most powerful baseband generator (R&S®SMBV-B10) includes an integrated arbitrary waveform generator as well as a baseband coder that allows signal generation directly in the instrument. Besides realtime generation of signals for user-configurable digital modulation, a multitude of digital standards such as HSPA+, LTE, WLAN and WiMAX are also supported (option). All signal parameters are configured directly on the instrument. Even complex signals can be generated with only a few keystrokes. Multicarrier test scenarios can also be defined on the instrument itself no matter whether working with different or the same digital standards. Multicarrier power amplifier (MCPA) tests and interoperability tests are very easy to perform. The R&S®SMBV-B10 baseband generator thus totally eliminates the need to generate test signals using an external computer and transfer them to the vector signal generator. This is especially beneficial in a development environment where fast, easy access to signal parameters is critical during both manual operation and remote operation. This helps to speed up the work flow and minimize development time. The realtime coder also enables the user to generate test sequences with a theoretically infinite length, e.g. with simple digitally modulated signals or internally generated digital standards such as 3GPP FDD (downlink) and GSM. This makes bit error rate tests reliable in cases where a sufficiently long test sequence is needed for statistical assessment. 6 Integrated ARB for playback of precalculated waveforms Precalculated test sequences are common especially in production environments. The R&S®SMBV100A is also well equipped in this area: All three versions of the baseband generator are capable of playing back precalculated waveforms. When it comes to generating standard-compliant signals, the external R&S®WinIQSIM2™ waveform generation software is also available. It supports standards such as LTE, HSPA+ and WiMAX. Proprietary signals and special test vectors (e.g. generated using MATLAB®) can also be played back from the integrated ARB with no problem. The two ARB-only versions (R&S®SMBV-B50/-B51) are recommended in all instances where a cost-saving solution is needed and there is no need to set signal parameters directly on the instrument. Memory depth of up to 256 Msamples for long test sequences The ARB memory can be extended from the standard size of 32 Msamples to 256 Msamples. This makes it possible to play back long test sequences for realistic measurements on DUTs. If the optional mass memory (R&S®SMBV-B92) is installed in the R&S®SMBV100A, it is easy to save test sequences in the instrument and recall them for later use without having to retransfer them. This speeds up manual tests and is of course also useful in production applications where numerous test sequences typically must be kept ready for use. A dream team: R&S®SMBV100A and R&S®FSV for generating and analyzing digitally modulated signals Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator 7 Support for all important state-of-the-art digital standards With its internal baseband coder (R&S®SMBV-B10), the R&S®SMBV100A optionally allows users to generate all major digital communications standards – and without needing any external signal generation software. Alternatively, waveforms can be generated for the digital standards using the external R&S®WinIQSIM2™ software. Besides applying predefined test signals, users also have free access to individual signal parameters. Users can thus generate standard-compliant cellular or wireless signals. Straightforward signal configuration due to easy-touse GUI During internal signal generation, the R&S®SMBV100A offers clear benefits due to its straightforward display and graphical user interface. The signal generator allows intuitive operation via the block diagram. The context-sensitive help system assists users during everyday work, e.g. when information is needed about individual parameters in the digital standards. 2G/3G/LTE mobile radio standards Signals used in second- and third-generation mobile radio are as easy to generate with the R&S®SMBV100A as broadband LTE signals.

Graphical display of settings for digital standards, e.g. EUTRA/LTE Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator 9 High-performance RF for all types of applications Excellent phase noise ensures low EVM with digital signals SSB phase noise is a key parameter when it comes to RF generator signal quality. This parameter is important not only in CW applications, but also particularly with digital signals. It has a direct influence on the error vector magnitude (EVM) of digital signals, which is an important parameter especially with today’s OFDM-based communications systems such as WiMAX and LTE. A well-designed RF unit provides a solid basis for fast, clean digital signal generation. This is necessary to allow reproducible measurements with the digital signals used in development and production environments. The good signal characteristics provided by the R&S®SMBV100A also include excellent figures for nonharmonics, which are important when making interference measurements. Measured SSB phase noise with internal OCXO (R&S®SMBV-B1 option) Measured maximum output power vs. frequency High output level compensates for losses in test/ system setup Test signals not only need to be pure; they must have sufficient power levels as well. This becomes obvious particularly when working with more complex systems in which the actual test setup (cables, switches, couplers, etc.) introduces losses between the generator and DUT. The R&S®SMBV100A can easily compensate for such losses with its high output power. With a specified output power of greater than +18 dBm (PEP) and typically even +24 dBm over a wide frequency range of 1 MHz to 6 GHz, the instrument delivers unparalleled performance in the mid-range class. This eliminates the need for external amplifiers, which not only drive up costs but also increase the system’s level uncertainty. –20 30 –30 3 GHz 1 GHz –60 100 MHz –70 10 MHz CW 28 27 26 –80 –90 25 –100 Level/dBm SSB phase noise dBc/Hz –50 I/Q 29 6 GHz –40 –110 –120 –130 24 23 22 –140 21 –150 –160 1 Hz 20 10 Hz 100 Hz 1 kHz 10 kHz Frequency 10 100 kHz 1 MHz 10 MHz 0 1 2 3 RF/GHz 4 5 6 Fast settling time for quicker measurements In production as well as in module characterization, numerous test points in the frequency and level domain are scanned. However, scans of this sort are only as fast as the slowest element in the chain. The R&S®SMBV100A makes a solid contribution with switching times of less than 1 ms in the standard List mode, thus helping to reduce the test time. This speeds up tests in development and helps to achieve throughput objectives in production at minimum costs. Analog modulation for basic measurements Analog modulation modes are also required in order to make the R&S®SMBV100A an all-purpose generator. This is why amplitude, frequency and phase modulation are all standard features. The R&S®SMBV100A also offers an internal LF source that can be used as a modulation generator. The analog modulation capabilities can be enhanced even further with an optional pulse modulator and generator that offers an impressive rise/fall time of typically only 4 ns and a maximum on/off ratio of typically 90 dB. Key features Low SSB phase noise typ. –128 dBc (1Hz) at 1 GHz Very low nonharmonics typ. –85 dBc up to 1.5 GHz Maximum output power typ. +24 dBm Fast frequency changes <1 ms in List mode Standard modulation modes AM, FM, φM Pulse modulation optional Histogram of measured level setting times in I/Q mode 10000 9000 List mode 8000 7000 Occurrence 6000 5000 ALC = Table 4000 ALC = Sample & Hold 3000 ALC = on 2000 1000 0 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 4 4.5 5 Setting time/ms Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator 11 Flexible signal processing and baseband connectivity CW interference and AWGN simulation The baseband section can also be enhanced with an option for additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN), which permits realistic tests involving noisy signals. The Noise Only and CW Interferer modes extend the generator’s range of applications. In the Noise Only mode, the R&S®SMBV100A behaves like a defined noise source with adjustable bandwidth and level. The CW Interferer mode allows the internal addition of a CW carrier to the wanted signal, eliminating the need for an additional signal generator. This function is very useful for measuring adjacent channel suppression on receivers. Key features Realistic scenarios with AWGN or CW interferer simulation Analog and digital baseband outputs To extend the range of applications of the optional internal baseband generators, they have analog differential I/Q outputs as a standard feature. This means that the R&S®SMBV100A can test the baseband section as well as the RF input of a DUT via its analog interface. Flexible baseband outputs Support for R&S®EX-IQ-Box digital interface adapter Support for R&S®EX-IQ-Box digital interface adapter The baseband interface also offers an optional digital signal output 1) that operates together with the R&S®EX‑IQ‑Box. The R&S®EX-IQ-Box makes adaptation to the device under test an easy task because it supports numerous common digital formats. The R&S®EX-IQ-Box is conveniently operated via the user interface of the R&S®SMBV100A. 1) Available starting in January 2009 (enabled via software).

This helps to maximize uptime in a wide variety of applications, which in turn means lower cost of ownership for the customer. In addition, customers can choose between calibrating or repairing the instrument themselves or having a certified Rohde & Schwarz service center do the work. This helps customers to minimize downtime and to return the instrument to operation again as fast as possible. This is especially critical in production applications. Long calibration interval of three years Modular design allows fast repairs Long calibration interval (three years) minimizes service costs Due to the stability of the components and modules that are used, the recommended calibration interval is three years. This minimizes the frequency of servicing, helping to save costs and ensure maximum uptime for the instrument. Straightforward modular design for short repair times In cases where repairs are actually necessary, internal error diagnostics help to pinpoint the problem. The design uses a minimum number of modules to simplify and speed up the exchange process. Since all modules have already been fully adjusted, a brief functional check is all that is necessary in order to restore the outstanding characteristics of the R&S®SMBV100A. If you also use a power sensor such as the R&S®NRP-Z92 to perform a new power level adjustment for the entire instrument, you can further increase the level accuracy. Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A Vector Signal Generator 13 Allrounder and specialist at the same time Key features Short switching times of <1 ms in List mode Multisegment waveform mode for fast switchover between test sequences High level repeatability ensures stable test conditions High output power allows substitution of additional power amplifiers Optimized for high production throughput Several characteristics are important for achieving high throughput in production. The fast frequency and level switching times provided by the R&S®SMBV100A (<1 ms in List mode) provide a solid foundation. However, to allow fast switching of digital signals as well, the R&S®SMBV100A supports the multisegment waveform (MSW) mode. The MSW mode makes it possible to switch between multiple test sequences that are kept stored in memory simultaneously. Switching is controlled based on a user-specified schedule or by external triggering. With a memory depth of up to 256 Msamples, it is possible to switch between a number of different signals without having to waste time loading the data. Typical switching times are a brief 5 µs at a clock rate of 50 MHz. This is important when testing the advanced multimode modules that are used to process the different signals in GSM and 3GPP FDD. Another important item is the level repeatability, which determines whether it is possible to obtain stable test conditions. The R&S®SMBV100A offers performance that makes it possible to set tighter measurement limits and thus increase the test yield. Since higher level losses typically occur in more complex production systems, the R&S®SMBV100A offers a high output power of >+18 dBm, and typically even +24 dBm over the entire frequency range above 1 MHz. This eliminates the need for additional amplifiers, thereby saving space and money and helping to avoid loss of level accuracy on the DUT due to drift. Multisegment waveform concept Waveform 1 Waveform 2 Level repeatability Automatic repetition of partial waveform Resulting waveform in output RAM Segment 1 Segment 2 Segment 3 Output signal Waveform 3 Segment switching by ¸SMBV100A user interface, IEC/IEEE bus, external trigger line 14 Prepared for aerospace and defense applications The R&S®SMBV100A offers two choices when it comes to generating typical pulse scenarios. The classic method uses an optional pulse generator and RF pulse modulator for a maximum on/off ratio of typically 90 dB. The other choice involves pulse generation using an I/Q modulator and an ARB signal for maximum flexibility in terms of pulse shapes and sequences. The optional R&S®SMBV-K6 pulse sequencer allows the easy generation of a wide range of realistic pulse sequences. With a high clock rate of up to 150 MHz, it generates pulses with steep edges while also supporting standard frequency hopping techniques with up to 120 MHz bandwidth. Screenshot of the R&S®SMBV-K6 During measurements on phased array antenna systems, the phase coherence option provides useful support. Multiple generators can be coupled to a common local oscillator to generate the signals needed for beamforming. Key features Optional pulse modulator with 90 dB on/off ratio Support for R&S®SMBV-K6 pulse sequencer software Optional coupling of multiple instruments for generation of phasecoherent RF signals If the generator is used in a secure area, sanitizing procedures help to support the clearance procedure. The optional hard disk used to store signal data can be easily removed without opening the instrument.
