Wide-band receiver boasts 60MHz bandwidth

The R5010 is a wide-band receiver from IZT with a frequency range up to 6GHz, up to 120MHz instantaneous bandwidth and powerful internal signal processing. Typical applications are COMINT Systems, satellite monitoring, wide-band RF recorders or quality measurements in mobile communication networks.

The instrument uses IZT’s latest generation of tuners and builds on the IZT R3000 series and IZT R4000 series. Accordingly, a lot of familiar features of the previous receiver series such as the synchronisation of internal clocks to an external source or a built-in GNSS receiver are possible.

The latest FPGA technology is used for signal processing. The receiver offers an instantaneous bandwidth of 60MHz.

Various software options increase the available bandwidth to 80 MHz or 120MHz.

The IZT R5010’s flexible job control allows the user to define complex scan scenarios that will be executed by the receiver.

Accurate time stamps allow to calculate the reception time of each sample down to sub-nanosecond accuracy.

The output data is provided via UDP/IPas complex I/Q data with embedded metadata. This output enables using the receivers with IZT SignalSuite or integrating the receivers in larger systems with their own software solutions.

Not all use-cases require or even support the continuous streaming of the large bandwidth. Therefore, the IZT R5010 can be equipped with an optional internal RAM buffer.
