Wideband receiver operates up to 120MHz

Operating with a frequency range up to 6GHz and up to 120MHz instantaneous bandwidth, the IZT R5010 wideband receiver is suitable for used in communications intelligence (ComInt) systems, satellite monitoring, wideband RF recorders or quality measurements in mobile communication networks.

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

The IZT R5010 uses latest FPGA technology for signal processing. The receiver offers an instantaneous bandwidth of 60MHz, increasing to 80 or 120MHz, depending on various software options available.

Users can define complex scan scenarios that will be executed by the receiver. Accurate timestamps allow the user to calculate the reception time of each sample down to sub-nanosecond accuracy. The output data is provided via UDP/IP as complex I/Q data with embedded metadata. This output enables using the receivers with IZT Signal Suite 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. For this reason, the IZT R5010 can be equipped with an optional internal RAM buffer.

The Innovationszentrum für Telekommunikationstechnik (IZT) is a spin-off of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the German institution for applied research. Founded in 1997 in Erlangen, the company emanated from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS). IZT specialises in advanced digital signal processing (DSP) and field programmable gate array (FPGA) designs in combination with high frequency and microwave technology.

IZT’s product portfolio includes equipment for signal generation, receivers for signal monitoring and recording, transmitters for digital broadcast, digital radio systems and channel simulators. IZT offers powerful platforms and customised solutions for high signal bandwidth and real-time signal processing applications.

IZT distributes its products worldwide together with international strategic partners. The IZT quality management system is ISO 9001:2015 certified.
