C-band Block Upconverter
The LW30-797767 BUC integrates an upconverter and SSPA into a small module and provides comprehensive monitor and control and user-definable options. Extended temperature range and harsh environment models are also available. RF output frequency is 5.85 to 6.725 GHz, IF input frequency is 950 to 1825 MHz, the small-signal gain is 60 dB, and saturated RF output power is 44 dBm. The upconverter’s input return loss is 13 dB, output return loss is 15 dB, noise figure is 18 dB, gain flatness is +/-2 dB across its operating frequency range, spurious rejection is -60 dBc, and phase noise is -91 dBc/Hz at a 100 kHz offset. It will operate over a temperature range of -20° C to +60° C, measures 190 x 90 x 50 mm, weighs 1.6 kg, and requires a 28 VDC supply at 3 A. It is IESS 308 compliant and has adjustable gain, temperature compensation, a lock-detect output, and reference detection and output protection.
