The Cross Technologies 2017-64 C-Band Up/Downconverter converts 70 MHz to 5.85-6.425 MHz (Up) and 3.625-4.2 MHz to 70 MHz (Down) in 0.125 MHz
steps with low group delay and flat frequency response. A common synthesized local oscillator (LO) provides frequency selection for
the Up and Down converter simultaneously. Multi-function push button switches select the RF frequency, gain, and other parameters.
Front panel LEDs provide indication of DC power (green), PLL alarm for up and downconverters (red), remote operation (yellow), and
Upconverter mute (yellow). Gain can be manually controlled over a 0 to +30 dB range for the upconverter and over a +30 to +50 dB
range for the downconverter as adjusted by the front panel multi-function push-button switches. Remote operation allows selection of
frequency and gain. Parameter selection and frequency and gain settings appear on the LCD display. Connectors are BNC female for
IF and the optional external reference input and output, and N female for RF. A high stability (±0.01ppm) option is also available. It is
powered by a 100-240 ± 10% VAC power supply and housed in a 1.75" X 19" X 16" 1RU chassis.
