Band Down Converter: STC-20-10-S1
Model STC-20-10-S1 is a W band full waveguide band down converter with an RF range of 75 to 110 GHz.
The full waveguide band down converter requires a +10 dBm LO signal in the frequency range of 12.5 to 18.33 GHz. It converts 75 to 110 GHz input signal to 10 MHz to 1.6 GHz output signal with a typical conversion gain of 20 dB. The required DC input is +12Vdc/450 mA.
The LO and IF connectors of the converter are SMA (F) and the RF connector is a standard WR-10 waveguide with UG387/U-M flange. The converter measures 6.0” (W) x 3.0” (H) x 8.2” (L) and weighs 3.6 Lbs.
The main application of the down converter is to down convert the millimeterwave band frequency to low RF band for convenient noise figure and gain measurements.
The full waveguide down converter family also includes many other frequency bands from 50 to140 GHz.
