RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

5.0   PMI Model: PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-10HP-MAH 

PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-10HP-MAHPMI's transceiver fits into a 3U open VPX form factor utilizing the high speed VITA 67 RF connector. This unit up-converts a 100 MHz to 4.0 GHz transmit signal to the 2.0 to 18.0 GHz range. It also down-converts a 100 MHz to 18.0 GHz received signal to the 100 MHz to 4.0 GHz intermediate frequency range for analog to digital conversion. A receive filter bank incorporates a 2-way absorptive switch to select an input along with two 6-way switches allowing one of six filter paths to be chosen. A filter bank is used also on the transmit path with two 6-way switches allowing one of six filter paths to be chosen. The unit is made to attach to an FPGA controller card allowing for total solution in a 10HP (2") form factor.
