IBC 2018: Rohde & Schwarz adds outdoor models to its family of satellite uplink amplifiers

IBC 2018: Rohde & Schwarz adds outdoor models to its family of satellite uplink amplifiers
The R&S PKU100 Ku-band satellite uplink amplifier combines the best of two worlds in a single device: the unbeatable strengths of solid-state amplifiers and the compactness and low weight of tube amplifiers. Now Rohde & Schwarz is adding outdoor models to its Ku-band family of amplifiers. The extremely robust and weatherproof models are perfectly suited for outdoor applications and feature all the advantages of the indoor model. The R&S PKU100 can be used in ground stations and satellite news gathering (SNG) vehicles.

Rohde & Schwarz adds 5G New Radio uplink analysis to its R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer

Rohde & Schwarz adds 5G New Radio uplink analysis to its R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer
Rohde & Schwarz is introducing a new solution for analyzing 5G NR uplink signals in line with the latest 3GPP specifications. The R&S FSW-K145 5G-NR UL measurement application for the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer is used to develop 5G user equipment and components such as power amplifiers. It complements the existing R&S FSW-K144 5G NR downlink measurement application, which is used to test 5G base stations. The R&S SMW-K144 5G NR option for the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator can generate the required signals for uplink and downlink receiver tests. All three 5G NR signal generation and analysis options now support 15.2.0, the most recent version of the 3GPP standard.
