Characterization of Satellite Frequency Up-converters

This application note describes methods using an R&S®ZVA Network Analyzer, one or two R&S®SMB100A Signal Generators and an R&S®FSW Signal Analyzer to accurately measure all the key parameters of frequency converters with embedded local oscillator. A commercial satellite up-converter is used as a device under test example. 

DVB-S2 & DVB-S2X Signal Generation in K-Band and Analysis

The application note address test and measurement possibilities for DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X signals in the Ku & Ka -band. The AN includes detailed description of measurement setups, DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X signal generation, up-conversion and signal quality (Error Vector Magnitude and Modulation Error Ratio) analysis in the Ku & Ka-band using Rohde & Schwarz instruments.
