The R&S EX-IQ-BOX is a digital signal interface module that provides
flexible digital baseband inputs or outputs for Rohde & Schwarz signal
generators, signal analyzers and communications testers. The main
application field of this device is the conversion of digital I/Q signals
of Rohde & Schwarz instruments into user-defined or standardized digital
signal formats, and vice versa.
For applications with user-defined protocols, the R&S EX-IQ-BOX enables
either serial or parallel transmission of I/Q signals to a DUT, including
variable clock modes, various data rates as well as different logical signal
levels. The device under test is connected via adapter boards
(= breakout boards) that are plugged directly into the R&S EX-IQ-BOX.
In applications with standardized protocols, the R&S EX-IQ-BOX provides not
only the I/Q data, but also control information of the respective standard.
Equipped with the corresponding options, the R&S EX-IQ-BOX supports the
standardized interface protocols CPRI (common public radio interface)
as well as DigRFSM. Both define an interface for the transmission of I/Q
and control data between baseband and RF module of a base station or
mobile terminals respectively. The parameters can conveniently be set via
the R&S DigIConf digital interface configuration software.
When equipped with the R&S EX-IQ-BOX, a Rohde & Schwarz vector signal
generator delivers realistic digital baseband signals for testing digital
transceivers or other components. It can thus cover all common
state-of-the-art standards such as LTE, WiMAX and 3GPP including HSPA,
as well as user-defined signals and effects such as fading, AWGN or I/Q
impairments. The R&S EX-IQ-BOX plus a Rohde & Schwarz signal analyzer enable
the reliable analysis of digital baseband components. As an accessory for
a Rohde & Schwarz communications tester, the R&S EX-IQ-BOX acts as a
versatile digital baseband interface for signal generation and signal
