The 1000XDF from Norsat International is a Dual-band Low Noise Block (LNB) that down-converts an RF signal from 10.70-11.70 GHz and 11.70-12.75 GHz to 950-1950 MHz and 1100-2150 with LO frequencies of 9.75 and 10.60 GHz, respectively. It has a noise figure below 1 dB, provides an output P1dB of 5 dBm with a gain of above 55 dB, and has a VSWR of less than 2.3:1. The LNB has an SSB phase noise that is dependent on a phase-locked, 10 MHz external reference. It requires a DC supply of 12-24 V and consumes a current of less than 350 mA.
The 1000XDF is available in an enclosure that measures 128 x 60 x 40 mm with WR-75, F-type (75 Ohm), and N-type (50 Ohm) I/O interfaces. The connectors are water-proof and the module has an operating temperature range from - 40 to 60 °C.
