Specifications apply under the following conditions:
30 minutes warm-up time at ambient temperature, specified environmental conditions met, calibration cycle adhered to and all internal
adjustments performed. Data designated "overrange", "underrange" and data without tolerance limits is not binding.
EMC specifications are tested with sufficiently shielded cables and accessories (e.g. mouse and keypad). To prevent degradation of
these specifications, the user is responsible for using appropriate equipment.
In compliance with the 3GPP standard, chip rates are specified in Mcps (million chips per second), whereas bit rates and symbol rates
are specified in kbps (thousand bits per second) or ksps (thousand symbols per second). Mcps, kbps and ksps are not SI units.

Introduction
®
®
Based on the successful R&S SMU200A platform, the R&S SMATE200A is specifically designed for production environments. As
such, the display and front panel user interface have been removed, the connectors moved to the rear, and performance has been
®
optimized for fastest setting times to improve factory throughput. Like the R&S SMU200A, however, the two-generators-in-one
concept has been kept, occupying four height units – a plus for production where space is at a premium. All of this is available without
®
compromising the excellent RF performance and baseband flexibility synonymous with the R&S SMU200A.
®
®
Speaking of flexibility, the modular design concept of the R&S SMATE200A means that the R&S SMATE200A can easily be adapted
to the needs of any application. Users have the choice of either 3 GHz or 6 GHz RF outputs in one or two paths and may opt for up to
®
two completely independent baseband sources. As in the R&S SMU200A, these sources may be used to produce complex signals in
realtime or output preloaded waveforms from the internal arbitrary waveform generator.
®
In addition to its inherent speed, the R&S SMATE200A also offers a special function to permit fast switching between different test
signals. The multisegment waveform function allows users to easily combine waveforms, such as GSM and WCDMA, during test setup
®
for even faster tests in production. This is just one of the R&S SMATE200A’s numerous adaptations to the special requirements of the
production environment.

At least one I/Q baseband generator (option R&S SMATE-B9/-B10/-B11) must be installed. If two I/Q baseband generators are
installed and two signals of the same standard (e.g. GSM/EDGE) are to be output simultaneously, two corresponding software options
®
®
must also be installed (in this case R&S SMATE-K40). If only one R&S SMATE-K40 is installed and GSM/EDGE is selected in one
I/Q baseband generator, the other I/Q baseband generator is disabled for GSM/EDGE. However, a software option is not tied to a
specific I/Q baseband generator.
The data specified applies together with the parameters of the respective standard. The entire frequency range as well as filter
parameters and symbol rates can be set by the user.

Combination of realtime operation (enhanced channels) and arbitrary waveform mode.
In downlink mode, the P-CCPCH (BCCH with running SFN) and up to three DPCHs can
be generated in realtime. All other channels (frame-cycle control channels such as
SCH, OCNS simulation, other base stations, etc) can be added via the ARB. In uplink
mode, one mobile station can be simulated in realtime (PRACH, PCPCH or DPCCH
and up to 6 DPDCHs); further mobile stations (three user-configured and up to 64 of
identical mode) can be simulated via the ARB and added to the realtime signal.
The sequence length of the ARB component can be entered in frames (10 ms each);
the max. length depends on chip rate, mode and in some cases on oversampling.

3GPP FDD enhanced BS/MS test including HSDPA (option R&S®SMATE-K43)
®
At least one R&S SMATE-K42 option must be installed.
®
This option extends the R&S SMATE-K42 (digital standard 3GPP FDD) to full HSDPA
support and dynamic power control. Therefore, all general parameters of the
®
R&S SMATE-K42 such as frequency range or modulation are also valid for the
®
R&S SMATE-K43.
General parameters
Downlink simulation
HSDPA channels (HS-SCCH, HS-PDSCH and F-DPCH)
®
Enhancements
The R&S SMATE-K42 supports simulation of HDSPA channels in a continuous mode
needed for TX measurements in line with TS 25.141 (test model 5). The
®
R&S SMATE-K43 now supports simulation of HS-SCCH (high speed shared control
channel) and HS-PDSCH (high speed physical downlink shared channel) in line with
TS 25.211. This implies the correct timing between these channels as well as the
possibility to set start subframe and inter-TTI distance. In addition, several F-DPCHs
(Fractional Dedicated Physical Channel) can be generated.
