SDR-IQ™ Software Defined Radio, Spectrum Analyzer and Panoramic Adapter

The SDR-IQ™ is a 14-bit software defined radio receiver. It offers a broad range of spectrum analyzer and demodulation capabilities. The hardware samples the whole 0.0001-30 MHz band using a high performance, 14 bit analog to digital converter (ADC) running at 66.6 MHz. The digital data from the ADC is processed into I and Q format using a direct digital converter (DDC). The I and Q data is then sent to the PC for processing using a USB 2.0 interface. All of the demodulation and spectral functions are done on the PC side.

The SDR-IQ™ comes with a High Frequency (HF) amplified front-end with switched attenuators, switched filters and 1Hz tuning. The SDR-IQ™ comes with the latest version of SpectraVue™ software. It supports AM, WFM, USB, LSB, N-FM, DSB and CW with fully adjustable DSP Filter bandwidths and FFT sizes of 2048 to 262144 points. The resolution bandwidth is as low as 0.031 Hz.
