SFU – Rohde & Schwarz Signal Generators

SFU – Rohde & Schwarz Signal Generators
3.00GHz (Frequency Range Max.)
The R&S SFU is the all-in-one solution for broadcast and mobile TV standards. It has been designed as a platform for various applications and is open for future options. It provides multiple instrument functionality in a cabinet of only four height units and offers unrivaled RF and baseband characteristics.

Due to its modular design, the R&S SFU can be optimally adapted to the requirements of different applications. It is an ideal research and development tool for making improvements to introduced standards and for generating new standard signals. Applications that previously required many different instruments are now fully covered by the R&S SFU. The modern, intuitive concept of the R&S SFU ensures fast and easy operation.
