Tampa Microwave Lab Inc., a manufacturer of complex microwave products for the military and satellite markets, has announced the release of a VME X-band block up and down converter to their growing product line.

The streamlined, modular product provides a compact and lightweight solution where frequency translation is needed between L-band frequencies of 1,100MHz to 1,600MHz and X-band frequencies of 7.25GHz to 7.75GHz.

The X-band converter offers system operators and designers a cost-efficient solution with outstanding low noise characteristics and high performance reliability. Phase noise performance characteristics are 1kHz at -80dBc, 10kHz at -95dBc, and 100kHz at -115dBc.

With L - or X-band input frequencies and X- or L-band output frequencies, the device features a 6,150MHz LO frequency, 10MHz reference input local oscillator stability, 15dB (max) noise figure, 30dB (down converter) and 20dB (upconverter) conversion gain, and 1dB over frequency range gain flatness.

Rated for operation between the -32C to 80C temperature range, it has a signal related spurious of -75dBc (typical), non-signal related spurious of -90dBc (typical), input VSWR (50 ohms) of 15dB (min), and output VSWR of 15dB (min). Power consumption is 400mA.
