High-End Signal and Spectrum Analyzer: R&S FSW85 High-End Signal and Spectrum Analyzer: R&S FSW85

The R&S FSW85 is the latest addition to Rohde & Schwarz’ family of signal and spectrum analyzers. It is the only device on the market designed to cover the frequency range from 2 Hz to 85 GHz in a single sweep, allowing users to test baseband and RF with a single analyzer. Test setups are now much simpler, since the R&S FSW85 does not require harmonic mixers. An internal preselection feature suppresses the image frequency and other spurious emissions that commonly occur during harmonic mixing.


  • What Are Bootstrap Capacitors?

    Components like bootstrap capacitors are increasingly vital for efficiently managing electrical energy in applications such as electric vehicles, renewable energy systems, and consumer electronics.

  • High Q Capacitors – Roles And Specifications

    The Q factor measures a capacitor's efficiency in storing and dissipating energy at a specific frequency, with a high Q indicating low energy loss and suitability for low-power, stable applications.

  • Electronically Steerable Frontend For Qualifying Automotive Radar
