IZT R5010

IZT R5010 VHF/UHF RX

Highest Reception Quality. The IZT R5010 uses IZT’s latest generation of tuners with sub-octave preselectors, dual conversion and a variable first IF for maximum robustness against false reception and high-power mixers for maximum linearity. A low-noise preamplifer can be activated for maximum sensitivity.  All internal clocks can be sychronized to an external source or the built-in GNSS receiver.

  • Typical applications are COMINT Systems, satellite monitoring, broadband RF recorders or quality measurements in mobile communication networks
  • Highest signal quality in the frequency range up to 6 GHz
  • Up to 120MHz instantaneous bandwidth
  • Six independent digital downconverters (DDC)
  • Real-time spectrum calculation
  • Large internal buffer memory
  • go2signals support

Large Instantaneous Bandwidth and Six DDCs. IZT R5010 uses latest FPGA technology for signal processing.
In its baseline configuration the IZT R5010 offers an instantaneous bandwidth of 60 MHz. Up to six DDC channels can be set up within the instantaneous bandwidth of the receiver. Each DDC can handle the full bandwidth, so the only limitation is the maximum output streaming capacity of 20Gb per second. With maximum decimation, the sample rate can be set as low as 10 kHz at the output of a DDC. 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 for calculating the reception time for each sample down to sub-nanosecond accuracy.

Broadband PSD. With option IZT R5010-200 the receiver calculates a PSD with 32678 points in FPGA with very high frequency selectivity. The PSD can be connected to any DDC in use. To reduce the data rate, a RMS detector can accumulate frames before the result is sent to the host computer via the digital interface.
