IQC5000B

The industry’s smallest high-fidelity dual-channel RF Record & Playback System


With up to 255 MHz of record and playback bandwidth, the IQC5000B Series, RF Record & Playback System can meet recording needs from HF to millimeter wavelengths in mission-critical applications.

The IQC5000B is designed to support operational security with removable memory for a total of 4TB of storage within the IQC5000B-MEM module, which can provide up to 50 minutes of single-channel record time at full bandwidth. The system’s external datapacks (up to 15 TB) also give users over 3 hours of single-channel record time at full bandwidth. The IQC5000B Record & Playback System is suited for laboratory, production, or field applications.

Features
  • 255 MHz RF streaming bandwidth on record and playback
  • Low-cost, removable storage options
  • Time-synchronous dual channel recording
  • Fast offload speeds using cabled PCI Express
  • Compatible with Keysight, Rhode & Schwarz and Tektronix Signal Analyzers
