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.

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
