40kHz 〜 6GHz の広帯域を連続カバー AR6000 9kHz - 6GHz Super Wide-band Multi-mode Receiver Photo of receiver with rack option HRE5001 www.aorja.com Continuous coverage from 9kHz to 6GHz! Zero IF system: While AR6000 applies direct conversion for frequencies below 25MHz, for higher frequencies the Zero IF system is used. Incoming radio signals are processed using synchronous detection driven by a local oscillator whose frequency is identical to, or very close to the carrier frequency of the intended signals. This method reduces image effects and allows output of a clean digital I/Q signal. In recent years, frequency bands above 3 GHz are populated with new signal standards such as MLS, STL and FPU. These new signals in the so-called C-band and S-band offer services such as ISM, WiMAX, etc..., which cannot be received with conventional wideband receivers. Not only the frequency coverage, but also high sensitivity and high reception accuracy are required for optimum performance. All over the world, frequency bands over 2.5 GHz are used for new digital cellular services such as LTE-Advanced, TD-SCDMA, and WCDMA/HSPA. Digital I/Q output: After the A/D conversion, the analog IF signal becomes a quadrature demodulation zero-IF signal. This signal has two components known as I (In-phase) and Q (Quadrature). I/Q signals are expressed on a complex plane, even at the same angular frequency; the digital signal can be processes clockwise and counterclockwise. With the option board IQ5001, digital I/Q can be output through USB 2.0 for demodulation by PC. This is where AOR’s new AR6000 receiver replies to such new needs by offering world’s first wide-band communication receiver with frequency coverage up to 6000MHz, based on revolutionary broadband reception and digital signal processing technology introduced with the AR-ALPHA, AR2300 and AR5001D receivers. On all frequencies, AR6000 provides excellent reception characteristics and can be used for signal analysis and signal strength measurement. Typical commercial applications are wide-area radio monitoring, interference detection and investigation, field-strength measurements, frequency analysis, radio propagation research, close range detection of illegal eavesdropping devices such as wiretap bugs and hidden wireless cameras. ■ Main features Super wide-band: AOR is the world’s first commercial receiver manufacturer to introduce a receiver with continuous coverage from 9kHz to 6GHz, in 1Hz step increments (2Hz over 3.15GHz). Unlike spectrum analyzers, it offers outstanding sensitivity, selectivity and reception stability. Thanks to its small size (30 x 22 x 10 cm), light weight (5 kg) and 13.5V power requirements, it can be easily carried around and used outdoors. AR6000 represents a ground breaking new concept to your signal measuring needs. Ultra low noise down converter: The 3.15 GHz to 6 GHz portion is realized by cleverly designed, internal down conversion circuitry, offering ultra-low noise figures comparable to high-end microwave-only receivers. Distributed constant circuit: To ensure low noise performance and minimal performance deterioration over time and environmental variations, AR6000 is based on distributed constant circuitry, carefully designed by CAD/CAM and is therefore much superior to conventional lumped element circuit based receivers. rd SDR architecture: Signals are processed digitally from the 3 IF stage for better performance compared to typical analog receivers which require a detection circuit with a separate filter. The firmware of the high speed DSP is upgradable with great possibilities of customization to meet future diverse needs. Direct conversion: For LF, MF and HF (9kHz〜25MHz), signals from the antenna are converted directly to digital baseband format through a single frequency conversion. This method based on LSI circuitry provides high selectivity and greatly reduces image effects. Highly accuracy reference frequency: When connected to the AR6000 communications receiver, the GP5001 GPS receiver improves the frequency stability from +/- 0.1ppm to +/- 0.01 ppm; by using the GPS pulse signal (one pulse per second) for an accurate time base of the local oscillator circuit. +/- 0.01ppm frequency stability of the 10MHz internal master oscillator is achieved when synchronized to a GPS signal. Outstanding signal level correlation: The signal input level from the antenna is tightly correlated to the analog 15MHz wide, 45.05MHz IF output and readings of the signal meter. Variations less than +/-1.5dB throughout all bands! Ideal for signal spectrum analysis, precise signal level measuring and demodulation, system calibration etc... Up to 240 hours of audio recording: Demodulated audio can be easily recorded as a PC compatible wav file with the built-in SD media recorder. Approximately 8 hours of recording per 1 GB. Max. SD size: 32GB (approx. 240 hours). Squelch recording function to avoid blanks.
