PMM 9010: the new fully digital receiver that
outperforms competition is here.
Continuing the tradition of offering
innovative technical solutions for easy and
practical measurements applications, the
PMM 9010 - a fully digital receiver in the 10
Hz to 30 MHz range - is the first cornerstone
of a system which grows together with the
users’ needs: all EMC conducted
measurements will be possible by simply
upgrading the PMM 9010 with specific
options, e.g. Click Meter, MIL-STD filters, and
accessories - LISNs and probes - providing a
full compliance with almost all international
standard or proprietary specifications.
Moreover, the modular construction, based
on pre-calibrated subassemblies, offers the
fastest and most convenient recalibration
and service ever!
PMM 9030 and PMM 9060:
PMM 9010 companion products
for testing up to 3 or 6 GHz
Until now, technology has not allowed a fully
digital receiver up to the GHz range, Narda
STS has conceived the best possible solution
designing these extensions for PMM 9010,
enabling the whole test system to go up to 3
or 6 GHz taking all the benefits from the
digital approach.
The PMM 9030 and PMM 9060 are therefore
the ultra-fast 30 MHz - 3 GHz or 6 GHz
receivers extending the measurement
frequency range of the PMM 9010 up to the
field of Radiated Emissions, thanks to a
dedicated RF module. A fast and safe
connection with PMM 9010 is guaranteed by
a High Speed Digital Optical Link, providing
the most immune way to transfer data: only
the real measurement data received at the
antenna reaches the detectors!
This dedicated digital Front End perfectly
matches with the PMM 9010, to create a
compact-size, up-to-date digital receiver up
to 3 or 6 GHz.
PMM 9030 and PMM 9060 are basically a
highly sophisticated auxiliary equipment,
which converts the RF input into a digital
signal sent to PMM 9010 through a Fiber
Optic Cable. The transfer rate is higher than
2.5 GB/s and a huge amount of information
is handled by the proprietary protocol.
Very limited dimensions and lightweight
construction allow the PMM 9030 and PMM
9060 to be connected directly to the
antenna, making the dream of many test
engineers come true. Benefits are really
many, as RF coaxial cables for antenna to
receiver connection may significantly affect
measurements due to intrinsic cable loss
and impedance mismatch.
Moreover, cables may pick up unwanted RF
signals along the path from the antenna to
the receiver. The PMM 9030 and PMM 9060
overcome all those error sources through
the optical link, thus providing more
accurate and reliable measurements.
In order to allow complete galvanic
separation, PMM 9030 and PMM 9060 are
battery powered by the same Li-Ion plug-in
rechargeable battery used for the 9010 unit,
thus providing interchangeability and noisefree performances for up to four hours of
continuous operation. Replacing the plug-in
battery is just a matter of seconds.
The PMM software can drive the coupled
9010-9030 or 9010-9060 to easily perform
any measurement foreseen by the
commercial and military standards, even
stand-alone or, whenever required, with the
necessary auxiliary equipment.

The Auto Attenuator
provides maximum dynamic range without

Programmable Gate Array) directly driven by
the internal DSP (Digital Signal Processor)
and provides optimum performances in
every testing condition, while protecting the
RF input (e.g.: zero dB attenuation is not
allowed in auto-attenuation mode).

provides correct response to continuous
and pulsed signals, while in most receivers
the preamplifier is directly connected to the
RF input. Saturation might be there without
The Internal RF Generator
in PMM 9010 is a very flexible RF generator
tracking with the span or settable at any
frequency in the range of 10 Hz ÷ 50 MHz:
another powerful tool for the designers that
makes the PMM 9010 an easy-to-use scalar
network analyzer for characterizing
components, filters etc.
This generator provides also the selfcalibration of the equipment, as it represents
the main frequency reference for all the
receiver operation.
To keep it calibrated, it‘s enough to send
back to Narda just the generator module
itself: a terrific advantage in terms of costs
and speed.
The Click Meter Option
allows the user to perform continuous
disturbance tests in a straightforward and
easy way.
The receiver takes care of everything:
evaluation of the Click Rate N; applicable
exceptions; Click measurement using Upper
Quartile Method; Full Report with all
mandatory data.
PMM 9010 fully supports the new standard
dealing with all the allowed four exceptions,
showing in real time all the events including
click details and reporting all mandatory and
optional data to make a detailed report. It
shall be noted that the handling of E-3 is the
most demanding in terms of hardware and
software, however it is also the exception
that is more beneficial for the customer, as it
allows to skip unnecessary tests. In general,
the first investigation is terminated as per
one of the required events listed in the
standard: after 40 clicks; after the standard
120 minutes; after a specific time span;
manually; paused and resumed to allow
restarting recursive EUT programs.

This means that the long, movable

ceiling of the lab and from there to the
receiver) is made with a fibre optic, not with
a coaxial cable which is heavier, thicker, less

near to the connectors. Again, mechanical

Operating Principles of the
PMM 9010-PMM 9030-PMM 9060
Perfect, life-long stable and calibration-free RBW filters
(picture: 200 Hz RBW CISPR filter)
After the A/D conversion the behaviour
of a regular receiver is mathematically
simulated in order to perfectly match
international standards specifica-tions.
Even for a digital architecture,
preselector filters and input attenuators
are mandatory for limiting the signal
energy into well defined RF bands, to
improve the dynamic range and to
increase the signal to noise ratio, thus
ensuring accurate measurements of all
wideband complex signals typical of
EMC measurements.
The input attenuator provides the
maximum dynamic range with no
distortion. This is particularly important
in conducted tests where overloading
signals may be present outside the
frequency band under test.
To prevent this from happening, the
PMM 9010’s input attenuator is directly
controlled by the DSP in wideband
mode to maintain the response
linearity in any conditions and also to
protect the RF input from out-of-band
signals that are too high.
No calibrations and no adjustments are
required after the A/D converter: CISPR
IF filters and detectors are all
mathematically calculated and are thus
not subject to any degradation for the
life of the instrument. This high
performance digital architecture
features an ultra-fast A/D converter
with the DSP controlling 3 more
processors for different functions: RSP,
The ADC is followed by the Receiver
Signal Processor - RSP - that performs
most of the analogue-like functions of
the receiver and handles all the
numeric signals within the digital IF,
with the main advantage of this
solution directly deriving from the
perfection of the mathematic
approach: the computing function is
equivalent to conventional analogue
mixers, but simply cannot generate
spurious components which are
therefore absent.
The sampled signals are processed by
the RSP in a purely mathematical
“mixer-like mode”, and then applied to
FIR (Finite Impulse Response) digital
RBW filters: the result is an unbelievably
stable filter, a shape controlled to
perfection as it is mathematically
modelled. Adjustments needed by
analogue filters are simply not required.
One of the fastest available DSP not
only controls the RSP, but also performs
all of the calculations and signal
representation, in real time; it controls
other functions like the frequency
sweep, etc.
The DSP simultaneously applies the
mathematical algorithms corresponding to the detectors Peak, CISPR QuasiPeak, RMS, Average, RMS+AVE whose
response is no longer depends on the
input signals, as the detectors always
work exactly as intended in perfect
time coherent measurements.
Thanks to the high number of
operations performed by the DSP equivalent to those of an ideal 10 GHz
Pentium 4™ - the DSP also manages the
different operating modes: Sweep
Mode, like a traditional receiver with
CISPR Limits stored in non-volatile
memory, Spectrum and Manual Mode.
The Spectrum Mode allows the receiver
to perform spectrum analyzer
functions, and thanks to the very high
scan speed (<100 ms for full-span 9
kHz-30 MHz @ IF resolution 300 kHz) it
is very useful for any kind of debugging.
In Manual Mode the filter in CISPR
bands is selected automatically
according to the frequency and the
data are displayed with a dynamic
range up to 120 dB, and the hold time is
theoretically required by the applied
Moreover, hold time means that the
receiver really stops for the preset time,
Block diagram of the PMM 9010 EMI Digital Receiver
thus taking a perfect picture of the
signal under analysis, with no drift
depending from on the sweep time.
Other RBW filter standards which may
be required in future can be easily
added: Narda designers will model
them mathematically, verify their
performances and add them to
userfriendly firmware upgrades.
The huge internal memory combined
with the capability of making a FFT
(Fast Fourier Transform) analysis of the
signals allows for an ultra-fast complete
scan of the whole A-band (9 to 150 kHz)
performed in only 1 second even with
the 200 Hz filter.
Even in those cases when the source is
on for very short periods of time – or
when the source has an extremely short
cycle - it is possible to see and measure
the emissions.
A clever function - the Smart Detector dramatically reduces test time and
improves productivity: the receiver
starts scanning with the fast peak
detector then, when the reading is close
to a selected limit it immediately turns
to quasi-peak detector (or any other
selected one), moves some frequency
step back and measures with the new
detector until the signal returns low;
then the receiver turns back in peak
mode and continues the scan at the
highest possible speed, repeating this
process any time there’s an over limit
peak .
This “performance booster” was first
introduced in PMM’s receivers in 1990.
To maintain calibration a signal
reference is essential: a high stability
internal RF Signal Generator (60 to 90
dBμV in 0,1 dB steps) has been added to
the PMM 9010.
This RF generator can work in tracking
mode with the span or set at any
frequency in the range of 10 Hz to 50
MHz: in addition to being the main
reference for the receiver, it also makes
the receiver an easy-to-use scalar
network analyzer for characterizing
components, antennas, filters etc.
To always keep your receiver perfectly
calibrated, just send the generator
module back to your Narda Dealer: a
terrific advantage in terms of costs and
After recalibration, this single module is
easily reinstalled into the receiver to
restart operations immediately after.
The PMM 9030 and PMM 9060 are
innovative and different from this
stand point: although they need an
external frequency reference source for
calibration check, the complete RF
front-end only - a single, solid block
module - can be sent to Factory the
same way.
implementation, it’s easy for such a
receiver to integrate a single channel
Click Receiver with no additional
hardware required: an external option

Moreover, the huge memory of the
receiver (required for storing each
disturbance duration and interval and
for post-process) is essential to be able
to fulfill the recently modified click
specifications approved by CISPR.
