Bobcat 32Ka Image

The Bobcat 32Ka from Comtech Xicom Technology is a SATCOM Block Upconverter that converts an input frequency (IF) from 1000 – 2000 MHz to an output frequency (RF) from 30.0 – 31.0 GHz. It is also available in a dual-band configuration with output frequencies of 29-30 GHz/30-31 GHz. This BUC delivers a saturated output power of 32 W with a small signal gain of 55 dB and gain adjustment of 25 dB in 0.1 dB steps. It is built using GaN solid-state devices that can provide high power levels while in the toughest environments. This BUC has spurious levels of -60 dBc and a phase noise of -103 dBc/Hz @ 1 MHz offset.

The Bobcat 32Ka requires a DC supply from 22-56 V and consumes 160 W of power. It is available in a rugged MIL-STD-810 certified module that measures 6.8 x 4.4 x 3.8 inches with Ethernet and RS-232 M&C interfaces while providing an option for OpenBMIP over Ethernet.
