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.

Received signals will be available as high resolution spectrum data in combination with up to four configurable wideband I/Q data channels with user configurable sample rates and independent centre frequencies. The wideband channels provide I/Q data between 5MHz and 100MHz bandwidth. Additional 32 channels with up to 4 MHz bandwidth each can be used for narrowband monitoring, demodulation or analysis functionality in software.

A dual 10-Gbit optical interface ensures adequate throughput in all operational scenarios. The IZT R5000 gives system integrators direct access to the control and data interfaces, where the received RF signals will be available both in IQ and PSD format.

When combined with the IZT Signal Suite Software, the new RF receiver also supports IZT's patented technique for frequency selective and dynamic recording of active portions of the spectrum. This feature results in a substantial reduction of required storage space.

"This new family of receivers uses latest digital signal processing technologies on a compact and robust hardware platform. This puts IZT in a leading position to address demanding applications, for example airborne direction finders or unattended outdoor nodes for spectrum monitoring or Time-Difference-Of-Arrival location finding" stated Rainer Perthold, CEO of IZT.  

The IZT R5000 can be configured for TDOA (Time-Difference-Of-Arrival) and DF (Direction Finding) applications. Like the IZT R3000, the IZT R5000 series will be available in various configurations and mechanical form factors ranging from rack-based, single channel indoor applications to multi-channel direction finding receivers for outdoor or airborne applications.
