PMI Intros Integrated Frequency Downconverter for Doppler Radar Systems
October 10, 2013 Press Release
PMI Model No. PIFA-9D4G-1D8G-1 is an integrated frequency down converter used within Doppler Radar
Systems. The RF Input is 9.4 GHz ±30 MHz with an input dynamic range of 100 to 0dBm. The LO
Input is 2.803 GHz ±15 MHz with a power level of +5 to +7 dBm. The resulting IF Output
Frequency is 1.8 GHz ±10 MHz. The RF to IF gain is 10 dB to 13 dB. This module incorporates
internal RF, IF and LO filtering and amplification for optimum out of band rejection and superior
electrical performance. The group delay ripple from RF to IF Output is less than 0.1 ns over a 20 MHz
bandwidth. The OIP3 is greater than 25 dBm. The module operates on single supply of +12 volts
and is supplied with SMA female connectors in a package measuring 1.8" x 1.15" x 0.4".
