Blockdown Converter (BDC)

Read more »

A range of broadband downconverter modules from 26.5 - 110 GHz have been developed based on the successful BMC series of balanced mixers and temperature stabilizes GN-series of gunn oscillators. 

These blockdown converters allow existing microwave hardware such as receivers, test equipment, etc, to be extended into the mm-wave spectral region. low noise figures are achieved over greater than 15 GHz bandwidths and the temperature stabilized gunn oscillators provide stabilities of the order ±35 MHz over an operating range 15 -25°C (e.g. BDC-28 model)
