Orbital Ka-Band BDC with Fixed Local Oscillators
Orbital Ka-Band Block Downconverters (BDCs) with Fixed Local Oscillators provide bandwidth of up to 1 GHz and can be tuned anywhere in the following Ka frequency bands: 18.2 to 20.2 GHz and 20.2 to 22.2 GHz. These BDCs deliver superior performance for broadband Ka satellite communications – and their flat frequency response supports high data rate applications with very low bit error rates (BER).
- External referenced for stability
- Exceptionally low phase noise
- Preset signal gains from 20 to 40 dB
- Linearity for higher-order modulation schemes
- Options for temperatures up to 70°C
Our Ka-band BDCs with fixed frequency oscillators are designed for broadband commercial, military and BSS satellite communication (SATCOM). Applications include large satellite teleports, small earth stations – and anywhere a user wants reliable access to the Ka spectrum. Airborne versions are also available.
