AVQ1020
ActiveCore® RF Layer Monitoring Receiver

Based on ActiveCore® Platform, AVQ1020 is a monitoring receiver for all major digital terrestrial broadcasting standards including proprietary modulation schemes. It has been designed as an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for monitoring digital transmitter systems performance. The receiver can be integrated into a transmitter system for remote monitoring applications or used as a stand-alone unit during design verification, production tests, and system calibration.

Measurements and Metrics:

  • » RF signal level and its variations;
  • » Signal statistic: MER/SNR, signal RMS, PAR, maximum peak value, signal CCDF, peak compression ratio;
  • » Frequency spectrum including the spectrum tilt, amplitude ripple, shoulder attenuation;
  • » Signal bandwidth and standard specific parameters;
  • » Effects of the transmission system non-linearity in terms of AM-AM/AM-PM curves measured on the broadcasted signal;
  • » Linear distortions found in the output RF signal - group delay and frequency response;
  • » Multipath echo and feedback interference detection, estimation and visualization.

Applications:

  • » Digital transmitter/repeater performance 24/7 monitor;
  • » Remote monitoring for broadcasting repeater system network;
  • » Test and design verification equipment;
  • » Signal analyzer for a wide variety of applications;
  • » R & D;
  • » In-field and production testing.
