Delivering High Performance Microwave Downconversion to Harsh Environments

The TAC-3290 tuner product family brings unparalleled flexibility and high performance microwave frequency conversion to users in harsh, space-constrained environments. Analyze more effectively and collect a wider range of signals with smaller single-channel (TAC-3290) and dual-channel (TAC-3294) RF options. Maximize digitizer results from signal records and downstream equipment with complete control over the output frequency and bandwidth.

  • Tune any RF input frequency from 0.5 to 26.5 GHz with optional frequency extensions to 44 GHz
  • Tune any IF output from 0.5 to 4.5 GHz
  • Selectable bandwidths of 500, 1000 and 2000 MHz
