DCR Rackmount Down-Converters

Our fixed tuned Rackmount Down-Converter products offer instantaneous bandwidths of up to 3.0 GHz with 70 dB of Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR). These cost-effective designs are capable of block down-converting microwave signals from 20 GHz to as low as 1 MHz, and can provide an economical approach to broadband radar signal down-conversion and communications research.

The 1U, 19" rackmount, 'pizza box' configuration supports a wide variety of configuration options. With half the box empty, it is even possible to place common DSP hardware inside the unit for a simple standalone receiver with outstanding performance.
