UCR Rackmount Up-Converters

Our fixed tuned Rackmount Up-Converter products offer instantaneous bandwidths of up to 3 GHz with 70 dB of Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR). These cost-effective designs are capable of up-converting high performance Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) or Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) outputs to 20 GHz, and can provide an economical approach to broadband radar signal synthesis, electromagnetic environment simulation, 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 transmitter with outstanding performance.

(Formerly the BBC line of converters, this line has been renamed to the UCR as of 1/1/16, in order to accomodate our growing number of products. However, it is the same great product with the same great design...)
