The integrated microcontroller performs the following tasks:

  • set of Tx and Rx frequency, Tx Power and squelch according to IDU commands;
  • measurement of Rx signal strength, and localc temperature;
  • compensation of analog parameters in function of:
    • Temperature;
    • Bitrate;
    • Tx power;
    • IF, Tx and Rx Frequency.
  • Alarm monitoring.

The unit supports the firmware upgrade in runtime.

RF Electronic technology and radio frequency: X Band UP/DOWN Converter

X Band Up Down Converter image

These are two units to Up/Down convert frequency in the radar band for airborne applications.

The Downconverter receives RF input signal (between 8.9 and 10 GHz) and converts it to IF through a two-stage process.

The Upconverter unit performs the opposite operation, receives the input IF signal (between 26 and 30 MHz) and rises it to the X-band RF by 2 stages of conversion.

Both units include a controller with firmware specialized to the management of automatic compensation and to the measurement of signal levels.

RF Electronic technology and radio frequency: Customer Premises Terminal Equipment

Customer Premises Terminal Equipment image

Radio unit purposely developed for the replacement of the CPE modem used for transmitting television signals according to the standards for cable television. It finds application where you want to build a distribution network for TV channels with the characteristics of the ′cable′ without the infrastructure of underground coaxial cables.

The unit includes the interface to the decoder and integrates all the control functions of the TX and Rx radio sections in the band of 28 GHz.

The Unit supervision is obtained through the integrated microcontroller that provides a LAN interface. The microcontroller supports SNMP, Telnet and TFTP.
In addition the unit can be redunded enabling the automatic active/standby exchange.
