RadioInspector: Automatic IQ Data Recording and Storage

RadioInspector now provides the ability to automatically record and store IQ data for signals that break an operator determined threshold, including RadioInspector’s unique, first of its kind dynamic threshold. Operators can enter a sampling rate (kHz) and recording length for each detected signal. Stored IQ data files can then be loaded at any time for post-processing and analysis or export as required.

This latest feature adds to RadioInspector’s unique, multi-layered IQ capability which includes the Signal Classification Analysis and Recognition sub-system (SCARS) and DTEST (Digital Test) program providing advanced, in-depth analysis of streaming IQ data for supported critical digital communication standards.

RadioInspector’s RF analysis and performance measurement sub-system provide live IQ digital processing for up to 8MHz of selected bandwidth with phase and amplitude analysis, filtering and decimation and constellation diagram.

IQ data can also be manually recorded during live spectrum scanning with an operator selected recording length for any chosen signal or bandwidth (up to the IF bandwidth of the receiver). When a wide bandwidth is recorded, individual signals or any portion of the recorded IQ data can be isolated and saved as a new file.

Recorded IQ data files are processed by the sophisticated stand-alone IQ process program, which was recently enhanced to provide the ability to process IQ data files of any size and includes a new scatters plot diagram display.

The ongoing development of RadioInspector’s class-leading IQ data recording and analysis provides operators with the ability to utilize current advanced receiver capability but also upcoming improved receiver hardware and computer performance as it is introduced into the market space.
