IZT Unveils Next Generation Receivers with 100 MHz Real Time Bandwidth

IZTIZT GmbH has expanded its powerful RF receiver family to introduce the IZT R5000. This next generation of high performance receiver combines up to 100 MHz instantaneous bandwidth with the proven excellent RF performance of the legacy IZT receivers. The R5000 covers the frequency range between 9 kHz and 18 GHz.

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.

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 center frequencies.

The wideband channels provide I/Q data between 5 MHz and 100 MHz 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.

This new family of receivers uses the latest digital signal processing technologies on a compact and robust hardware platform. It is the perfect solution to address demanding applications, for example airborne direction finders or unattended outdoor nodes for spectrum monitoring or Time-Difference-Of-Arrival location finding.

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.


The receivers will be available in late 2016. Initial models include both a 19-inch 1U unit for rack-based installations and a rugged mechanical variant for harsh outdoor environments.
