Test and Measurement: Rohde & Schwarz launches new sub-6 GHz tester

January 20, 2023


Rohde & Schwarz has launched a new, single-box performance vector tester for signal generation and analysis in sub-6 GHz (Frequency Range 1) spectrum for testing base stations and small cells as well as radio frequency components.

The new R&S PVT360A “meets the increasingly demanding requirements for 5G NR FR1 base station and small cell tests, resulting from additions to the original 3GPP Release 15 specification in Releases 16 and 17,” the test company said. It noted that the instrument’s frequency range runs from 400 MHz to 8 GHz, which includes unlicensed U.S. bands at 7.125 GHz. The tester has a 500-megahertz maximum signal bandwidth, which goes beyond the FR1 max of 100 megahertz and can therefore support measurements of adjacent channel and out-of-band signal leakage.
