Ultra-compact Vector Signal Generator for Production Tests

RS-SGT100A03 June 2014 - Rohde & Schwarz presents its new R&S SGT100A, the smallest and fastest vector signal generator with up to 6 GHz, specially optimized for use in production test systems. Using its internal baseband generator, the instrument reliably produces test signals for various digital standards. The R&S SGT100A combined with the R&S FPS signal and spectrum analyzer yields the ideal solution for production tests of high-frequency components.

The new R&S SGT100A vector signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz covers the frequency range from 80 MHz to 6 GHz. It is equipped with an integrated baseband generator that supports a maximum bandwidth of 160 MHz. Using the R&S WinIQSIM2 PC software, the generator can quickly and easily deliver test signals for all major digital standards such as LTE, 3GPP and WLAN IEEE 802.11ac.

Featuring frequency and level switchover times of typically 240 µs, the R&S SGT100A is the fastest instrument of its type on the market. The short switching times of just a few microseconds between the various digital test signals speed up test sequences. Taking up just one height unit and ½ 19" rack width, the R&S SGT100A also saves space in the test setup. In addition, the instrument has been optimized for minimum operating costs: It is available at an attractive price and consumes little power. The long, three-year recommended service interval saves money. Feature upgrades can be performed directly at the customer's location.

The above performance features make the R&S SGT100A perfect for use in production environments and in automated test systems. The instrument delivers the necessary test signals for dependably characterizing modules and RF components such as amplifiers, or for testing femtocell base stations, for example.

The R&S SGT100A is ideally complemented by the R&S FPS signal and spectrum analyzer. Together, the two instruments can be used as a mini system for testing high-frequency components at maximum speed.

The R&S SGT100A vector signal generator is now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
