IZT S1010 supports high-speed data transfer rates and provides a large touch display for enhanced usability

Erlangen – May 10, 2017 – The new IZT S1010 signal generator is the ideal solution for highly demanding applications that require extensive data streaming. At the same time, users benefit from the smaller dimensions, compared to the well-established IZT S1000 signalgenerator equipped with an external memory extension, not to mention from the large integrated touch screen and enhanced usability.

The high-speed data streaming functionality is integrated into the IZT S1010 by means of very fast SSDs which make it possible to stream a large number of VSGs (Virtual Signal Generators) in parallel. Using the powerful streaming feature allows multiple DAB ETI (Ensemble Transport Interface) or EDI (Encapsulation of DAB Interfaces) signals to be modulated in real-time in order to test receivers, radios and chips. In addition, MRC (maximum ratio combining) tests are possible in this configuration. MRC is a method of combining the signals from multiple diversity branches.

The IZT S1010 comprises all the related digital processing and is equipped with 4 x 1 TBSSD (optional) and a 250 GB SSD system disk. These disks are accessible from outside with robust HDD trays and are used to store and stream test vectors at high speed. As there are no moving parts for the SSD, the IZT S1010 is very robust and can be used in harsh environments and at high altitude.

The IZT S1010 features a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI). The internal TFT has a built-in multi-touch controller which ensures enhanced usability. The device can be controlled from the internal TFT or using external displays. Remote operation is also possible. The IZT S1010 is housed in a 19″ chassis with three rack units’ height. Adding RF hardware and software options allows the IZT S1010 to be configured to specific user needs.

For the IZT S1010 signal generator an optional rack mount slide mechanism facilitates mounting the device in a 19″ rack and allows it to be accessed from the rear. An optional DC12V supply can be installed instead of the AC redundant supply. In addition, the IZT S1010 is available with a 10 Gbit optical LAN interface for rapid data transfer from an internal S1010-SSD storage device and from an external data storage medium. With this option, very high data transfer rates can be achieved.
