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

   

 

PMI Model No. PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-10HP-MAH is a transceiver covering the frequency range of 100MHz to 18.0GHz.  The transceiver fits into a 3U open VPX form factor utilizing the high speed VITA 67 RF connector.  This unit up-converts a 100MHz to 4.0GHz transmit signal to the 2.0 to 18.0GHz range.  It also down-converts a 100MHz to 18.0GHz received signal to the 100MHz to 4.0GHz 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.
