Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication/Production Tester

Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication/Production Tester


The Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication/Production Tester is a compact solution for fast and precise production testing of current and future wireless devices from basic mobile phones to the most sophisticated PDAs. The multitechnology platform allows users to implement the concept of a lean production line from start to finish: A single measuring instrument covers all RF test requirements.

The Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication/Production Tester unites three basic functions in one box: RF generator, RF analyzer and signaling (network emulation). As a result, it can be flexibly used in all stages of production – from calibration and verification to functional testing. The extreme scalability, test speed and measurement accuracy translate into minimum test costs. The compact tester approach with SCPI remote control concept minimizes the effort involved in planning and upkeeping production test systems.

Features of the Rohde & Schwarz CMW500:

  • Base model: general-purpose RF power meter and CW generator with List modes for fast calibration 1) of wireless devices
  • Vector signal analyzer (VSA) for transmitter verification 1)
  • Vector signal generator (VSG) for receiver testing
  • Signaling (network emulation) for functional testing
  • Reference RF power measurement enabled by direct connection of R&S®NRP-Zxx power sensors
  • Easy connection to wireless devices with complex RF architecture by using the integrated RF interface
  • State-of-the-art graphical user interface (GUI)
  • SCPI remote control via LAN/GPIB interface
  • Ready for LXI Class C
  • Process controller with Windows® XP operating system
