Rohde & Schwarz has rolled out the 40GHz version of the R&S SGU100A RF upconverter that extends the frequency range of the R&S SGS100A vector signal generator from 12.75GHz to 40GHz. According to the company, this feature makes the R&S SGS100A the smallest microwave device of its kind on the market for continuous signals between 80MHz and 40GHz.

Though compact (two height units and 1/2 19in rack width or one height unit and full 19in rack width), the combination of the R&S SGS100A and the R&S SGU100A offers outstanding performance, added Rohde & Schwarz.


The set-up is geared for ultra-wideband aerospace and defence applications, as starting from 12GHz the R&S SGU100A can be used with a 2GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth. Together with the R&S SMW200A high end vector signal generator with a frequency range up to 40GHz, a compact system with a maximum of three phase coherent outputs up to 40GHz can be set up, ideal for testing phased array antenna systems, the company indicated.

The R&S SGU100A is available from Rohde & Schwarz as a pure CW upconverter and as a version for I/Q-modulated signals.
