From May 20, 2019, to December 31, 2019, the Rohde & Schwarz “This Changes Everything” package promotion offers customers a wide selection of the company’s entry-level instrument solutions fully equipped at an attractive price. Customers can choose from Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, power supplies and power analyzers, and get all the bandwidth, channels, inputs, memory interfaces and signal generation up front. Customers who might need to budget for future upgrades based on design needs, can maximize their investment up front, making the purchasing process easier.

Design engineers can build up their bench and maximize their bench’s performance for every day applications like EMI debug, power integrity, battery testing, channel power and low speed serial with the instruments available through the promotion: It includes five oscilloscopes, including the R&S RTB2000, the R&S RTM3000, the R&S RTA4000; two spectrum analyzers, including the R&S FPC1500; three power supplies, including the R&S HMP4040, the R&S NGE100B, the R&S NGL200; and one power analyzer, the R&S HMC8015.

Oscilloscopes

The entry-level line of oscilloscopes from Rohde & Schwarz come equipped with a logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, waveform and pattern generator and voltmeter in the same instrument. Featuring the power of 10, the R&S RTB2000, R&S RTM3000 and the R&S RTA4000 include a class exclusive 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (A/D converter), 10 Msamples of memory depth and a 10.1-inch touchscreen offering the highest resolution in its class: 1280x800 pixel. The technology’s 10-bit A/D converter provides sharper waveforms and more signal details, compared to conventional 8-bit A/D converters, yielding up to four-fold improvement.

Select from the following options:

Spectrum Analyzer

The entry-level spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz offer the value and capabilities of a three-in-one instrument – a spectrum analyzer, vector network analyzer and a signal generator. The R&S FPC1500 offers a frequency range of 5 kHz to 3 GHz, the ability to measure RF signals, function as an RF signal generator, and feature a tracking generator and independent continuous wave (CW) signal generator. The spectrum analyzer also includes a one-port vector network analyzer with Smith chart display, a signal generator, internal voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) bridge, independent signal source and resolution bandwidth settings down to 1 Hz. The R&S FPC1500 comes with a 10.1-inch Wide XGA (WXGA) display (1366 x 768 pixel), is Wi-Fi-enabled and offers remote control capability. It is compatible with iOS, Android and PCs and features low noise floor and high maximum input power.

Select from the following options:

  • R&S®FPC1000, R&S®FPC1500
  • Frequency range: up to 3 GHz
  • DANL: < - 165 dBm typ.
  • Phase Noise: < - 103 dBc/Hz
  • Screen Size: 10.1” WXGA

Power Supplies

Power supplies from Rohde & Schwarz offer two, three or four channels, maximum voltage from 128 V to 300 V, the same voltage range on all channels, and maximum current of 40 A, up to 10 A output current per channel. Offering high efficiency and low residual ripple, the products include a wide variety of protection features to prevent damage to the instrument and the device under test (DUT), such as overtemperature, overload and short-circuit protection.

Select from the following options:

Power Analyzer
