Model: PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-MAH 

 

        

  

PMI Model No. PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-MAH is a transceiver covering the frequency range of 100MHz to 18GHz. The transceiver fits into a 3U Open VPX from factor utilizing the high speed VITA 67 RF Connector.  This unit up-converts a 100MHz to 4GHz transmit signal to the 2.0 to 18.0GHz range.  It also down converts a 100MHz to 18GHz received signal to the 100MHz to 4GHz 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 the six filter paths to be chosen.  A filter bank is used also on the transmit path, with two 6-way switches allowing one of the six filter paths to the chosen.
