A wideband up/down converter designed to operate in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) environments with an on-board frequency synthesizer and low power consumption all in a credit-card-sized footprint. The module supports time division up/down-conversion with 1GHz of instantaneous bandwidth and offers the ability to combine IF channels for further flexibility.
The Cesium UDC-1AT1 includes a high-precision clock for LO generation; the module can provide this clock as a reference for other modules, or lock to an external system reference.
Use as a stand-alone up/down converter or combine with other Cesium modules for a complete Ka-band communication solution.
