R&S®AFQ100A I/Q Modulation Generator
Meeting new challenges in baseband signal generation
Whether in the commercial or aerospace and defense field, customers require excellent signal quality, speed and high flexibility when selecting a signal source. Besides, there is a growing need for development and testing in the digital baseband domain. The signals to be created are increasingly complex and dynamic. They use complex modulation schemes and demand more and more bandwidth. The R&S®AFQ100A is a state-of-the-art, self-contained and flexible baseband source that perfectly meets those requirements.
An important component of such test equipment is a flexible baseband source that allows development and production tests to be performed on state-of-the-art receivers for a variety of standards. A self-contained baseband source must fulfill a wide range of signal requirements. Plus, it needs variable digital and analog outputs in order to directly operate the DUT. Used as a modulation source for vector signal generators, the
Featuring a maximum clock rate of 300 MHz and a waveform memory of up to 1 Gsample, the
Especially in the case of very broadband applications, modules such as I/Q modulators produce a nonlinear frequency response. To compensate for this effect, the
