Rohde & Schwarz R&S®SMBV100A vector signal generator is now more stable and delivers higher signal purity

The new R&S®SMBV-B1H high-performance reference generator option adds enhanced performance to the R&S®SMBV100A vector signal generator. Especially customers in the A&D market will benefit from the better stability of the RF frequency and from improvements of the close-in phase noise.

The new R&S®SMBV-B1H option provides a high-performance oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) in the R&S®SMBV100A vector signal generator. The option offers better frequency stability over time as well as with changing ambient temperatures. Plus, it improves the close-in phase noise of the R&S®SMBV100A compared not only with the standard instrument but also with the R&S®SMBV-B1 OCXO option, which has been available since the instrument’s launch.
