The XTSLIN-150X-B1 from Xicomtech is a Solid State Block Up Converter that operates in the X-band with an input frequency from 950 MHz to 1450 MHz and an RF frequency from 7.9 to 8.4 GHz. It provides a linear output power of over 150 watts and a factory configurable small-signal gain of 65 to 75 dB while consuming only 875 VA of power. This is a lightweight converter that allows direct mounting to the antenna, minimizing waveguide RF losses and is ideal for mobile applications. It is available in a compact, rugged 32 lb. package that measures 17 x 10.5 x 6.8 inches, with forced air cooling to allow reliable operation over extended temperature ranges. The monitor and control (M&C) interface provides a component system status via Ethernet or RS-485 and RS-232.
