Rackmount RF Converters

The high-performance microwave frequency converters are available in both a modern 19-inch rackmount form factor and a legacy half ATR chassis. These microwave transceivers incorporate the latest RF technology and a modular design approach to provide the broadband performance required to grant the user dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Since your broadband application is unique, these converters support rapid customization at both the factory and mission level. Parameters such as bandwidth, number of outputs, phase noise, coherency and form factor can be selected to yield a product perfectly tailored for your system.

Is your Microwave Frequency Conversion Solution Limited by your IF Bandwidth?

Both our rackmount microwave transceivers and ATR chassis products support our flexible IF architecure. By allowing the user to adjust the IF bandwidth and center frequency through simple software commands a single up/down converter can be optimized for specific signals and support operation with a wide range of digitizers, thereby reducing costly system upgrades.

ATR Chassis for Form – Fit – Function Equivalence

These ruggedized up and down frequency converters have been designed to enable rapid technology insertion into existing platforms. With RF frequency up to 40GHz, a 2GHz IBW and modern Ethernet compatibility these products are ideal to grant legacy systems the technology required for success in the modern day battlefield.
