The AM9030 from Atlanta Micro is a Miniature Tuner Module that operates from 0.9 to 18 GHz. It also provides a bypass path from 10 MHz to 3 GHz for direct spectrum transmission. This heterodyne tuner module is designed for high performance, low size, weight, and power (low SWaP) and is mechanically mountable to a host circuit board for use in multi-channel receiver applications. It includes sub-octave preselectors, pre-amplifiers, local oscillators, frequency converters, ADC driver amplifiers, power and control line filtering, a temperature sensor, and a control FPGA. The analog IF input frequency is centered at 2 GHz with a 1 GHz bandwidth. Multiple tuner sets can be configured to work together for coherent operation and N-channel applications.
The AM9030 provides a gain of 6 dB and an image rejection of more than 70 dB. It has a tuning frequency range from 1.4 to 17.5 GHz with a tuning step size of 5 MHz and a tuning speed of 100 μs. This module requires a DC supply of 3.3/5 V and consumes less than 5.5 W of power. It is available in an enclosure that measures 76.2 x 35.6 x 6.8 mm.
