Testing Satellite Frequency Converters

Frequency converters, a key component in modern satellite communications systems, create special characterization challenges for developers and manufacturers. The signals, processed by these converters and their modulation formats, can change dramatically from day-to-day and even hour-to-hour. The channels may be re-allocated to different services, and with its high cost,...
