iRF has developed a series of the Banded Low Noise Block Down Converters. (“BLND”) as well as an associated rack mount assembly, which offers compact, modular, cost effective approach for a highly dense design of fixed dual channel coherent down converters.
The BLND product provides multiple fixed 1GHz Ka/Ku-band block down converters, each with a 950 – 1950MHz output. The plug-in channel card supports two channels on a single input frequency and is phase coherent.
This RF Front End design provides a dual channel fixed L – Band IF to interface for compatibility with existing processing systems. The converters will be housed in a rugged 5-slot Network Capable Card Cage (CD-ROM style chassis).
