Signal generator supports NGO waveform
The Sirius/XM signal generator from IZT has a new overlay waveform. The overlay modulation which was used for the Sirius Waveform was exchanged and enhanced with the next generation overlay (NGO). IZT Signal Generators support the new broadcasting technology and are suitable as test equipment for upcoming broadcasting systems.
Digital radio systems to be showcased at IBC
At this year's International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam (September 11 to 15), IZT is presenting solutions for digital radio systems as well as high-performance test and measurement products. These include solutions for broadcast infrastructures like the IZT DAB/DRM ContentServer in addition to the IZT DAB Archive, a system for quality control and long-term archiving of DAB multiplexes.
Multipath fading simulator for satellite link emulator
A new and powerful Fading Simulation option has been added to IZT's C3040 Satellite Link Emulator. The Multipath Fading Simulator allows for precise modelling reflections of the signals on terrain, fixed and moving objects, both in satellite and terrestrial communication networks. The IZT C3040 Satellite Link Emulator is a cost-effective, time-saving solution for satellite and aircraft RF link testing.
RF receiver covers 9kHz-18GHz frequency range
The IZT R5000 was faerured on the ITZ stand at EW Europe. The next generation of high performance receivers combines up to 100MHz instantaneous bandwidth with the proven excellent RF performance of the legacy IZT receivers. The R5000 covers the frequency range between 9kHz and 18GHz.
Data streaming demands met by compact signal generator
Ideal for highly demanding applications that require extensive data streaming, the new IZT S1010 signal generator enables users to benefit from its smaller dimensions. It is equipped with an external memory extension, large integrated touch screen and enhanced usability. The high-speed data streaming functionality is integrated into the IZT S1010 by means of very fast SSDs which make it possible to stream a large number of VSGs (Virtual Signal Ge...
Digital TV test solution set for IBC in Amsterdam
The International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam beckons and IZT will present its latest solutions for broadcast infrastructures like the DAB/DRM ContentServer and high-performance test and measurement products, including the S1000 signal generator with expanded DVB-T/DAB support. Further show highlights include products from IZT’s families of wideband receivers.
RF receiver boasts 9kHz to 18GHz frequency range
THE RF receiver family at IZT has been extended with the introduction of the IZT R5000. The next generation of high performance receivers combines up to 100MHz instantaneous bandwidth with the proven excellent RF performance of the legacy IZT receivers. The R5000 covers the frequency range between 9kHz and 18GHz.
Signal generator supports transition to DVB-T2 standard
The S1000 signal generator from IZT offers a solution to simulate the new digital TV standards and to test related receivers. It provides an easy and cost effective approach to evaluate the functionality of digital TV receivers. Using modulators, TV standards like DVB-T, ISDB-T and the recently launched DVB-T2 are supported. An option to support the CMMB standard is in preparation.
Software cooperation extends GNSS support
To expand its GNSS support, IZT has cooperated with TeleOrbit, the marketing & sales unit of TeleConsult Austria. To enable the generation of GNSS signals provided by the GIPSIE software from TeleOrbit to be integrated into the feature set of the IZT S1000 signal generator. The signal generator with its broad frequency range and the Virtual Signal Generator (VSG) channels enables the similar generation of various GNSS standards in one device ...
RF Receiver combines 120MHz Bandwidth with 32768-Point FFT
A new option has been added to IZT’s R4000 RF receiver. The 32768-point FFT option in combination with the 120 MHz real-time bandwidth ensures reliable detection of fast bursts and frequency-agile signals. Even the most advanced hoppers with extremely high hop rates are detected under demanding SNR environments.
Hardware, software solutions drive OTA test system
An Over-The-Air (OTA) wave field synthesis system for test and certification of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receivers was presented by Fraunhofer Gesellschaft at it’s IIS Facility for Over the Air Research and Testing (FORTE) in Ilmenau. The innovative and complex OTA test system is mainly based on Hardware and Software solutions from IZT, including powerful RF receivers and high performance signal generators.
Software extension ushers in new approach to signal recording
The R3000 Signal Archive is a software-defined extension to the IZT R3000 receiver family. It receives the data from the actual receiver and buffers it in the memory. This approach allows users to visualise and extract any signal in the entire memory depth without having to interrupt recording.
