MITEQ unveils test translators, upconverter
MITEQ has introduced a new series of portable test translators designed to translate C-, X-, Ku- and Ka-band satellite communications frequency transmit bands to their respective receive bands.
The translators are available in single-, dual-,tri-, and quad-band configurations and have a convenient suitcase-style form factor. Features include high frequency stability, minimum amplitude and delay distortion, and low phase noise contribution.
MITEQ also has unveiled the 9900 series communication upconverter, which covers the 13.75GHz to 14.8GHz band and provides an L-band monitor output for ENG/SNG and video broadcasting applications.
The output lets an operator monitor the uplink signal using an L-band receiver or spectrum analyzer. Monitoring and control features can be controlled locally or remotely. Features include control of frequency, attenuation and 64 memory locations that can be used to store and recall various setups.
