What is a Frequency Converter?

A frequency converter is an electronic device that can change the frequency of a signal. Frequency converters can be of the following types:

  1. Upconverter
  2. Downconverter
  3. Up-down Converter

An upconverter converts a low-frequency IF (intermediate frequency) input signal into a high-frequency RF out            put signal for signal transmission. A downconverter converts a higher-frequency RF input signal to a lower-frequency IF output signal. An up-down converter is an electronic device that integrates both upconverter and downconverter circuits in a single package. It is used in the transceiver system to do both up-conversion and down-conversion operations.

Frequency converters are suitable for use in 5G, base stations, point-to-point radio, 5G customer premises equipment (CPE), satellite communication terminals, electronic warfare systems instrumentation, radar system, and much more applications.

Important Parameters when Looking for Frequency Converters:

  • Input Frequency: It is the frequency of the signal that needs to be converted.
  • Output frequency: It is the frequency of the signal that has been converted.
  • LO Frequency: It is the local oscillator frequency.
  • Phase Noise: It is the random, short-term fluctuations in the phase of a waveform, usually measured in dBc/Hz. A lower value of phase noise (dBc/Hz) is desirable.
