Product Description

  • Best signal quality in its class
    • Low SSB phase noise of typ. –128 dBc (20 kHz carrier offset, 1 GHz carrier frequency, 1 Hz measurement bandwidth)
    • Very low SSB phase noise even at low output frequencies (because a new DDS synthesizer is used from 9 kHz to 23.4375 MHz instead of a downconverter)
    • Nonharmonics suppression of typ. –85 dBc (>10 kHz carrier offset, carrier frequency <1.5 GHz)
    • Low wideband noise of typ. –152 dBc (>10 MHz carrier offset, 1 GHz carrier frequency, 1 Hz measurement bandwidth)
    • Harmonics of typ. –30 dBc at the maximum specified output power of +18 dBm for high measurement accuracy in a wide variety of applications
  • Highest output power in its class
    • Specified output power of +18 dBm over the wide frequency range of 1 MHz to 6 GHz
    • Typical maximum level of +25 dBm (in overrange) over the entire frequency range up to 6 GHz provides power reserve to replace external amplifiers
  • On-site servicing as convenient alternative
    • Flexible concept allows servicing to be done on site or by a Rohde & Schwarz service center
    • Straightforward modular instrument design with only four exchangeable modules ensures short repair times
    • Calibrated replacement modules make extensive calibration and adjustment tasks unnecessary
    • Built-in selftest of modules supports troubleshooting
    • Verification of level accuracy and automatic level correction with a connected power sensor of the R&S NRP family ensures low cost of ownership and maximum instrument availability
  • All-purpose RF source
    • Wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz covers the main frequency bands for RF applications
    • Integrated frequency, level, and LF sweeps
    • All important analog modulations with AM, FM/φM, and pulse modulation supported
    • Internal LF generator provides sinewave signals up to 1 MHz as well as squarewave signals up to 20 kHz
    • Intuitive user interface with graphical display of the signal flow facilitates operation
    • Context-sensitive online help ensures efficient utilization of the instrument makes the R&S SMB100A the ideal signal source for a wide variety of applications
  • Ideal for production
    • Short switchover times for frequency of typ. 1.6 ms and level of typ. 1.2 ms via remote control and <1 ms in the List mode allow high throughput
    • High level accuracy and repeatability are the basis of high production yield
    • High output power of up to +25 dBm compensates level loss on the way to the DUT
    • Wearfree electronic attenuator with overvoltage protection up to 6 GHz as standard ensures long service life even in the case of
      heavy use in production
    • Compact design with only two height units saves rack space
    • Remote control via LAN, USB, and GPIB allows easy integration into the test system reduces production costs
  • Ready for aerospace and defense applications
    • Optional pulse modulator offers excellent performance with typ. 90 dB on/off ratio and a rise/fall time of typ. 10 ns
    • Flexible pulse generator with minimum pulse width of 20 ns allows the generation of various pulse signals
    • Wide temperature range of 0 °C to +55 °C and maximum permissible operating altitude of 4600 m above sea level allow the instrument to be used even under extreme conditions
    • Low weight of only 5.3 kg for mobile applications expands the range of locations and applications for which the R&S SMB100A can be used
