The ConvertaWave2 is a robust broadband RF downconverter / tuner that covers the 200 to 2500 MHz frequency band. The output of the downconverter is a 70 MHz IF signal that has been band-limited to one of five user-selectable IF bandwidths between 500 kHz and 10 MHz. It has a tuning range of 1 Hz. Custom IF filter bandwidths can also be developed.
The ConvertaWave2 provides internal or external 10 MHz frequency reference, low local oscillator (LO) phase noise and features both automatic gain control (AGC) and manual gain control (MGC) with over 100 dB of available attenuation in 1 dB increments. Configuration of the unit is performed via serial commands through a terminal program or by an optional graphical user interface (GUI). In either case, ConvertaWave2 offers extensive user control to make it the perfect complement to any high-performance receiver system.
