Rohde & Schwarz: EMC test and measurement solutions at EMV 2018
Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate its comprehensive range of EMC test and measurement solutions – from single devices to customer-specific, turnkey systems. The EMC expert will also present customized measurement software for precompliance and certification measurements as well as accessories such as broadband amplifiers, RF switching units and measurement antennas.
For the new radio equipment directive (RED), the now mandatory certification guideline for radio equipment in Europe, the R&S TS8997 test system offers certification testing in line with ETSI EN 301 893 and EN 300 328 for wireless devices in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band as well as testing in line with FCC §15.247 and §15.407, including DFS tests. The R&S TS8997 test system supports DUTs with 8x8 MIMO. It meets or even succeeds the demanding measurement requirements of these test standards. Other test solutions on display include solutions for broadcast receivers in line with RED, for digital TV broadcast receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 340, for radio receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 345 and for indoor satellite broadcast receivers in line with ETSI EN 303 372-2.
Thanks to their high measurement speed and comprehensive diagnostic tools, the R&S ESR and R&S ESW EMC test receivers are ideal for EMC certification in line with CISPR, EN, FCC and MIL as well as for automotive applications. External mixers were added to extend the frequency range of the R&S ESW for measurements in line with FCC and ETSI. The receiver now measures, for example, the harmonics of transmission equipment up to a receive frequency of 500 GHz.
For developers who want to check EMC performance during development, Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the clear and easy-to-use R&S ELEKTRA test software. R&S ELEKTRA replaces the proven R&S ES-SCAN software and supports all of the company's current EMC test receivers and spectrum analyzers. Rohde & Schwarz will also present an attractive solution for EMC debugging during development: the entry-level R&S FPC1000 spectrum analyzer, the R&S HM6050-2 line impedance stabilization network and the R&S HZ-17 near-field probe set together with R&S ELEKTRA.
Different test scenarios are often required to validate a design or product. The broadband amplifiers in the new R&S BBA130 family from Rohde & Schwarz offer a one-box solution.
