Rohde & Schwarz and NMDG join forces to expand network analysis portfolio

27 September 2010 - Rohde & Schwarz announced a cooperative agreement with the Belgian company NMDG, a highly specialized provider of nonlinear network analysis solutions, that will allow Rohde & Schwarz to expand its extensive network analysis portfolio of nonlinear measurement solutions.

Today’s advanced RF components and systems need to support complex modulation techniques and accommodate even wider transmission bandwidths. The goal is to achieve higher data throughput while simultaneously lowering power consumption. "Network analysis that characterizes nonlinear effects allows RF components and systems to be optimized as early as possible in the design phase," explains Jörg Fries, Head of Product Management for Spectrum and Network Analysis at Rohde & Schwarz. "This is why semiconductor development engineers are increasingly interested in T&M solutions that can be used to reproducibly align the data gathered during characterization, modeling and simulation as well as from real-world measurement sequences. Since NMDG is an expert in this field, we are now optimally prepared to meet such requirements."

Dr. Marc Vanden Bossche, the founder of NMDG, says, "Together with Rohde & Schwarz, we have provided test solutions for analyzing nonlinear components since 2008. As a system integrator, NMDG uses T&M equipment from Rohde & Schwarz to produce advanced characterization systems. We are looking forward to collaborating even more closely with this partner on the joint development and propagation of nonlinear network analysis."

As a leading manufacturer of vector network analyzers, Rohde & Schwarz offers a complete portfolio ranging from budget-priced general purpose instruments for the RF range through high-end instruments covering frequencies up to 500 GHz. Rohde & Schwarz has also achieved a number of significant milestones, including the world’s first vector network analyzer (1950), the first network analyzer with eight ports (2005) and the first true four-port vector network analyzer up to 67 GHz (2010).

NMDG Engineering bvba, the root of NMDG, was founded in 2003. Backed by an highly experienced team of professionals in high-frequency measurement & simulation technology, NMDG delivers high-frequency measurement systems and services that characterise and analyse "beyond S-parameters" the behaviour of active high-frequency (HF) electrical components under realistic test conditions.
