Converters/Extenders

Frequency converters and extenders from iRF provide customers with a convenient, reliable, well performing solution for frequency expansion. The reduced SWAP profile of iRF’s converters make them exceptionally well suited for deployment in the field.

iDC-1720

17 to 20 GHz Block Downconverter

iDC-1720 Front (2) The iDC-1720 block downconverter covers 17 to 20 GHz vertical and horizontal polarizations. The low SWAP allows for mounting directly to the antenna feed. It provides an extremely low noise figure and phase noise to receive and ultimately process high order digital modulation waveforms. Read more…

iDC-6830

6U VPX Dual Microwave Down Converter

The iDC-6830 is a Dual-Channel RF Converter (RFDC) packaged in a 1-inch pitch, conduction cooled, VPX circuit card assembly per VITA 48.2. Each channel divides the full RF input spectrum from 2.0GHz to 18.25 GHz into a set of eight dedicated, sub-octave IF outputs located within the frequency range of 2.0 to 6.0 GHz. 

iDC-6850

6U VPX Microwave Wideband Down Converter

The iDC-6850 8-band RFDC is a 1 inch pitch, conduction cooled, VPX circuit card assembly per VITA 48.2. The RFDC contains a full spectrum, non-blocking RF Down Conversion Module (DCM). The DCM provides RF to IF conversion, pre-selection, and gain equalization. The DCM has 3 RF input ports and 8 IF output ports. Each DCM accepts an RF input ranging from 2 GHz to 18 GHz and provides output signals over the IF frequency range of 0.75 GHz to 2.75 GHz.
