Two frequency options, the R&S SMB B112 and R&S SMB B112L, upgrade the R&S SMB100A analog signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz to new levels of performance. Both devices cover an exceptionally wide frequency range from 100kHz to 12.75GHz. Additionally, the R&S SMB B112 option enables the R&S SMB100A with a wear-free electronic step attenuator.

An electronic step attenuator is particularly beneficial when the generator's level settings must be changed frequently. For example, in production lines or in automated test equipment (ATE) systems, the device ensures the required high switching speed and withstands heavy wear.

When equipped with the R&S SMB B112 / R&S SMB B112L option, the R&S SMB100A can perform the blocking tests that are specified in many telecommunications standards. In these tests, the useful signal at the receiver is subjected to interference from a CW signal on a frequency up to 12.75GHz. It can also be utilized as an RF source for tests on X band radar equipment and in a variety of other applications. Like previous models, the 12.75GHz signal generators of the R&S SMB100A family also deliver a high output level as standard, outstanding RF characteristics and low cost of ownership.
