Rohde & Schwarz plans this month to release the R&S SFE100 test transmitter, targeting production test applications for a wide range of broadcast applications, including mobile TV.
The R&S SFE100 combines an RF signal generator, power amplifier and baseband generator into a compact package. It comes in several models to handle common terrestrial, satellite, cable and mobile TV standards as well as a number of sound broadcasting standards. Each model can be equipped with a baseband generator appropriate for the specific transmission standard being tested. For digital transmission, the baseband signal is provided in the form of transport streams. For ATV modulators, the signal takes the form of analog CCVS signals. No external baseband generator is required.
