The Rohde and Schwarz R&S FSP series of spectrum analyzers is the most popular spectrum analyzers from R&S.   It’s still a staple in many engineering labs today. For those Engineers who don’t have budget for a R&S FSW series spectrum analyzer the R&S FSP might be a possible solution.

High Measurement:

The R&S FSP30 is ideal for time critical applications with its high measurement speed of 100 measurements in manual operation, a minimum sweep time of 2.5 ms and 1 µs zero span as standard.  The highly selective, fast sweep digital filters featuring "analog" response allow measurements on pulsed signals as well as the use of the built-in frequency counter. The ¸FSP comes standard with different filter types for digital resolution bandwidths up to 100 kHz such as Gaussian filter, raised root cosine (RRC) filter and steep-sided channel filters. Up to a resolution bandwidth of 30 kHz, fast Fourier transform (FFT) is available in addition. In the analyzer mode, the Gaussian filters have the advantage of high sweep speed plus excellent resolution. At high span/RBW ratios, measurements using FFT can be as much as 300 times faster than measurements with digital filters.

Ultra-Low Measurement Uncertainty:

In the vital frequency range below 3 GHz, the R&S FSP is outstanding for its ultralow measurement uncertainty. The total measurement uncertainty is less than 0.5 dB. Due to this excellent value, the use of power meters in routine lab applications very often becomes unnecessary.

Phase Noise:

The low phase noise of the  R&S FSP30 spectrum analyser  makes it suitable for demanding measurement tasks both in the vicinity of the carrier (typ. –113 dBc (1 Hz) at 10 kHz) and far from the carrier (typ. –125 dBc (1 Hz) at 1 MHz). The rohde and Schwarz FSP is ideal for performing spectral analysis and ACPR measurements on narrowband systems such as IS136 or PDC as well as on wideband systems such as IS95 or WCDMA.

Did you know that you can perform phase noise measurements with the option K4?  

The option K4 ( Phase noise measurement software) enhances the spectrum analyser to a phase noise tester at a significantly reduced rate compared to new phase noise analysers/signal source analysers on the market. 

RMS Detector:

The unique RMS detector measures modern, noise-like communication signals with optimal repeatability and stability. As there are neither correction factors nor the typical errors caused by averaging of logarithmic trace data, the correct average power is displayed with high stability for all signal types – almost like in measurements with a thermal power meter.

Noise Figure Measurements:

Because of its excellent display linearity, the Rohde and Schwarz FSP is also ideal for noise figure measurements. The optional Noise Measurement Software ¸FS-K30 enhances the ¸FSP to form a noise measurement system. More details are available on the datasheet.

This is all just a few of the features and capability of the R&S FSP30 and FSP series spectrum analyzer. More details are available under the documents tab on the datasheet.
