RF & Bench Essentials Reference Guide

Rohde & Schwarz

A quick-reference guide to the essentials of RF & Bench test and measurement equipment

Much has been written, published and presented about the basics of RF and Wireless fundamentals. Basics are often told from the perspective of reviewing academic concepts focusing on design optimization. This reference guide attempts to bring you back to some of the essential elements of both digital and RF testing and measurement.

In addition to explaining some of the common specifications you will see from test equipment manufacturers, this reference guide can also be a gateway to dig into some of the details contained in a more in depth fundamentals or primers guide on specific measurement instruments. These can always be located at our website or through one of our distribution partners.

Spectrum Analysis and Spectrogram

Check out how the new R&®RTM3000 and R&®RTA4000 have features like FFTs and spectrogram views. See frequency over time. Using the spectrogram, it’s easy to see frequency components not expected at specific times.

This oscilloscope is now by far my favorite oscilloscope in my lab.

"I like that it has a large screen, the screen’s sharpness and clarity, the multitude of built-in functions and measurements and the clear help documentation, displayed directly on the screen and easily accessible for each button and function of the oscilloscope. This help implementation is a great feature for students or anyone who is a beginner in using oscilloscopes. All these features make the R&S®RTB2000 oscilloscope 'a piece of jewelry' in my lab."



- Dr. Cosmin Iorga, UCLA Extension Instructor


The display is simply spectacular.

"For me, this instrument represents a paradigm shift in how I troubleshoot. It combines so much powerful functionality into one instrument and streamlines the tasks so efficiently that it will get used far more than my previous instruments. Features like the deep storage memory, high resolution A/D, 4 channels plus logic probes and FFT capability allow me to troubleshoot problems I couldn’t tackle before."
