Product Description

The R&S? AFQ100B with a bandwidth of 528 MHz (RF), a clock rate of 600 MHz and a waveform memory of up to 1 Gsample is the correct choice for applications that require high bandwidth. Examples are the support of broadband digital communications systems such as UWB (ultra-wideband) or Aerospace & Defence (A&D) radar applications where signals with extremely short pulses and short rise and fall times might be needed.

  • Memory clock rate:
    • Standard Mode (Mode 1): variable clock rate (1 kHz to 300 MHz) can optimally be adjusted to the signal
    • Broadband Mode (Mode 2): very high clock rate of 600 MHz
  • RF bandwidth:
    • Standard Mode (Mode 1): 200 MHz
    • Broadband Mode (Mode 2): 528 MHz (especially suited for UWB and A&D applications)
  • Long signal duration of up to 1 Gsample (R&S? AFQ-B11 option)
  • New WinIQSIM2 option (R&S? AFQ-K264) for flexible UWB signal generation according to the WiMedia Alliance (ECMA-368)
  • High bandwidth for generating very short pulses with short rise and fall times
  • R&S? Pulse Sequencer Software for generating complex pulse patterns (R&S?AFQ-K6 option)
  • Accuracy < 20 ps when starting several instruments simultaneously phased-array antenna development and testing
  • Removable hard disk to meet high security requirements
  • Excellent spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of typically 78 dBc
  • Frequency response of typically ▒ 0.5 dB across 100 MHz I/Q bandwidth
  • Very pure sine wave source
  • Analog I/Q outputs (balanced and unbalanced) and optional digital outputs
  • Multi-segment waveform for reducing switching time between different test signals and thus improving test throughput
  • Numerous trigger and marker capabilities
  • Optional BER measurements for characterizing receivers
  • Digital standards like WCDMA, LTE, HSPA, WiMAX, WLAN, MB-OFDM UWB▄using WinIQSIM2""
  • Pulsed signals with R&S? Pulse Sequencer Software (R&S?AFQ-K6 option)
  • R&S?MATLAB transfer toolbox for easy interoperability with MATLAB?
  • R&S?ARB Toolbox for converting numeric I/Q data into waveform files
  • Remote control via GPIB, USB, and LAN
  • User interface via external monitor or Windows XP Remote Desktop
  • USB connectors for USB equipment (keyboard - mouse - memory stick)
