Ka-Band 4 Channel Downconverter
RFE Inc. has designed a convenient, cost-effective solution for translating wideband 18 to 40 GHz RF signals into the 6 to 18 GHz domain (via two separate converter banks) giving extended frequency coverage to many existing systems.
RLC Electronics’ multiplexers are available in 2, 3 or 4 channel versions. Adjacent passbands may be designed for a contiguous or non-contiguous response. For passband frequencies below 2 GHz, lumped element designs will often achieve the desired response in the smallest package. At higher frequencies (up to 40 GHz), distributed coaxial structures are employed to realize the lowest possible loss. The unit pictured above is a diplexer that covers both L-/S-Band frequencies, as well as Ku frequencies, and exhibits low loss (< 0.5 dB per channel). This unit has been fully qualified to operate under military environments and is currently used on an airborne application.

Voltage Controlled Oscillator
The USSP1570-LF is designed to cover the frequency range of 1540 to 1600 MHz while tuning over 0.5 to 2.5 VDC. This unmatched VCO features extremely low-power consumption by operating off a 2.7 VDC supply and drawing a mere 7 mA of current all while housed within an ultra-small footprint measuring 0.2 × 0.2 × 0.04 in. This VCO features a spectrally clean signal of −90 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset.
